For several decades Lean Six Sigma methodology represents the best practice in the world of business for achieving production excellence with the optimisation of costs for a number of years now. The LEAN method concentrates on the analysis and revision of the processes with an eye to eliminating waste and maximising efficiency, and to this end supplies a specific approach and specific tools.

With the consolidation of the service economy, increased competition and customer awareness, were born also for adaptation and application of the principles of Lean Manufacturing in the world of services, creating the LEAN Management Service and the concept of "Lean Organization" also for the services sector.

LEAN IT occurs when LEAN Service Management is applied to organisations that supply IT services. In this context, LEAN Management adapts and concentrates on the elimination of waste and the improvement of the efficiency of the IT services that are supplied.
