Lean IT Association (LITA) – Driving Change for a Global Standard for Lean IT Co-opetition

Blog Post • Industry Insights •

Cooperating for the Betterment of the Market

For those of you familiar with Lean IT, you are probably aware of the fact that initiatives for education and certification for Lean IT have been fragmented with no universally established global standard.

That all changed when six market leaders and co-competitors joined forces to provide an industry-standard set of Lean IT reference materials and resources for practitioners. Their mission is to provide a clear understanding of the value and positioning of Lean IT relative to other bodies of knowledge, frameworks, and standards. Plus establish an accreditation scheme for practitioner organizations, IT service and operations departments and professionals who want several levels of certification paths.

Here’s the thing, co-opetition is not new. There are examples of legendary competitors/co-competitors like Apple and Samsung, BMW and Toyota, Microsoft and Google, plus many more from all sorts of industries and markets working together for the betterment of a market, a product or an industry. But, let’s face it, it’s not every day that you hear about co-opetition taking place in the IT Best Practice Space; with the formation of the Lean IT Association that’s exactly what you get.

As training and consulting organizations, this is important news for you, your clients and your clients’ clients. To get the answers to the above questions and more visit the official LITA website .
