Lean Delivery - Business Benefits and Commitments
A client of mine asked for some help in explaining the business impacts of using lean approaches for delivering IT solutions to his ministry stakeholders. (my client is a director of IT in the public sector)
After a couple of hours of work I put together this illustration. It shows a pattern that I have found myself using on a separate project. The pattern involves using a solution analysis work cell to filter and transform ideas into roughly same sized work packages.( or MMFs or MRFs or whatever)
This solution analysis work cell isn't meant to do thorough analysis, rather it does quick pattern matching between the problem domain and existing IT capabilities and systems, breaking and structuring work as required so that these packages can be routed to the right solution team.
