Lean Agile Management
It is a struggle to incorporate changing needs, expectations, and even technology into active operations and projects and maintain productivity. New information which could have increased value at times is ignored because the existing plan or process makes no room for changing circumstances, and work continues diligently to do or produce the outcome that was designed and approved even though its value is diminished. Lean-Agile principles offer the opportunity to support delivering progressively increasing value. It’s iterative, team-based approach, methodologies and techniques allow incorporation of new information and knowledge to maintain and support ROI in both projects and operations.

Very often vendors either ignore this new information and slavishly pursue the present activity to the end, celebrating the fact that we completed what was assigned/ designed, but failing to earn the desired business value or return on investment that initiated the very undertaking.
