By applying principles borrowed from lean manufacturing the IT industry has embraced a new way of working. This lean method focuses on reducing waste through the elimination of work that adds no value to a service or product. Lean IT aims to instill a continuous improvement mindset within organizations. This is done striving to understand customer value, the processes that deliver that value and the needed attitude to achieve that value. The Lean IT certifications offered by EXIN have been developed by the Lean IT Association (LITA). This non-profit organization comprises 3 examination institutes (APMG, EXIN and PEOPLECERT) and 3 accredited training organizations (ITpreneurs, Pink Elephant and Quint Wellington Redwood).
