Europe Ahead of U.K. in Use of Lean IT

U.K. CIOs are falling behind in their use of lean IT and are far less mature in their approaches than their European counterparts, a top European consultant claims.
Sune Schackenfeldt, a lean IT consultant with PA Consulting Group, says that although there is a hard business case to be built around the use of lean IT techniques, very few CIOs in the United Kingdom have applied it to better manage resources or to help prioritize projects.
PA describes lean as a management strategy that seeks to improve operational performance in terms of cost, quality, delivery and staff satisfaction by focusing on the customer and eliminating waste, variability and inflexibility.
