The authors outline the key disconnects in areas such as the lack of Integration and synchronization between IT and the business as caused by unnecessary complexity

Love it, I have taken these principles and began a transformation on my company. Highly recommend this book for anyone looking to bring efficiencies to your organization.

Highly recommended, especially for IT focused organizational managers/scrummasters. Charlie Sheen says this one is a "WINNER". I agree with him in this case. Includes a look at how Lean relates to things like ITIL, and the relationship with Agile Software Development. Comprehensive, clear, and very helpful.

The basis for Lean IT certification, is an assorted journey by the IT world, applying lean thinking principles on the way. Good enough for an introduction.
