LEAN IT Special Interest Group

Exchange best practices, ideas and lessons learned on Lean IT.

As more UWEBC members lead Lean, Process Innovation or Process Optimization initiatives within their company, they need an outlet to interact, share opinions and expertise, and leverage peers' experiences. The Lean IT Special Interest Group addressed a variety of topics, methods and practices crucial to successful deployment and operation of Lean IT.

This SIG was customized for directors and managers with direct operational responsibility for deploying Lean practices within the IT space or senior practictioners with specific content expertise (Six Sigma Black Belts, etc.).

This SIG concluded in July 2015.
