Lean IT Strategies
Portland, Oregon Area
What energizes me:
People are amazing and resourceful. Often however they are surrounded by wasteful business processes and leadership behaviors that can stifle their effectiveness. In the private, public and nonprofit sectors alike, Lean and Agile thinking can help us energize and align people to continuously improve and innovate in order to serve others better.

Steve Bell is author of 'Run Grow Transform' and 'Lean Enterprise Systems' (the first publication to use the term “Lean IT”) and coauthor of 'Lean IT', which received the 2011 Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence research award.

Steve serves on the faculty of the Lean Enterprise Institute. He travels worldwide, coaching, speaking, leading workshops and gemba walks, and advising clients on Lean IT strategy. Steve is the co-founder of Lean4NGO (www.Lean4NGO.org) whose mission is to help make Lean and Agile thinking accessible to humanitarian aid organizations.
