Columbia, MD, December 21, 2015 (Newswire.com) - RTH Solutions LLC is proud to announce the launch of the Lean IT Association (LITA) accredited Lean IT Foundation via both virtual and on-site classroom training. The Lean IT Foundation certification is part of the Lean IT certification scheme.
Lean is about making the organization more efficient and to effectively respond to external demand. Incremental and radical change methods such as Agile Scrum can be used to transition the organization to Lean principles in production and management. IT Service Management can get a huge benefit out of Lean IT by removing waste and optimizing the value of the IT services.
The Lean IT Certification Scheme consists of 4 distinct certifications for various levels. Starting at entry level with the Lean IT Foundation and moving on to Lean IT Kaizen Lead, climbing further up the ladder to Lean IT Leader or Coach. Each level introduces more knowledge and skills, eventually leading up to competences that enable a professional to support corporate introduction or further development of Lean IT initiatives.
The Lean IT Foundation is a foundation level program targeted at a broad audience within IT. The foundation program covers:
- The principles underlying the Lean philosophy
- The importance of understanding and delivering customer value
- The way Lean looks at processes and the waste within them
- How to measure performance and the key determinants of performance
- What the organizational requirements are when implementing Lean, including the use of visual management tools
