 Summary

Going beyond the usual how-to guide, Lean Six Sigma Secrets for the CIO supplies proven tips and valuable case studies that illustrate how to combine Six Sigma’s rigorous quality principles with Lean methods for uncovering and eliminating waste in IT processes. Using these methods, the text explains how to take an approach that is all about improving IT performance, productivity, and security—as much as it is about cutting costs. Savvy IT veterans describe how to use Lean Six Sigma with IT governance frameworks such as COBIT and ITIL and warn why these frameworks should be considered starting points rather than destinations.
