Reading about lean processes ...

there is a very pragmatic reason to adopt a Lean workflow strategy, regardless of what sort of product you are building: Lean scheduling provides crystal clear leading indicators of process health.

Aw man, it's like an alcoholic standing on the outside of a bar, looking in: Sure does look nice in there. Everybody hanging around, being friends, dart board in the back, Bob Seger on the juke.

Stuff is going on in there and outside it's cold and there are wolves.

We do the lean thing at work - it just hasn't made it's way into our department, much. Lean process for manufacturing appears to be a lead-pipe cinch. Applying those same methods to IT and specifically systems administration - not so easy.
