Mtech embraces Lean Digitalisation Framework
We always use Triari’s Lean Digitalisation Framework (LEAD) when carrying out development work, whether on an individual digital application or a massive IT system. It is practical and concrete, but there is a wider philosophy behind it.
Our own operations embrace LEAD too; it’s not just something we preach. Crossing organisational boundaries is an essential part of the philosophy.
LEAD is a business development framework that springs from the needs of a business. It is agile, flexible, and reacts quickly as necessary. LEAD covers all business from strategy level – it is a comprehensive model for ideas and operations.
Agile development to support you
The implementation of LEAD takes place using highly compatible practices that are as simple as possible. Each one of them is business-oriented. All parts of the organisation affected directly by the product to be developed are included in the development work. It is also recommended to include representatives of the potential customer.
It is essential to identify and prioritise the most important factors for business. Agile business is able to make clear decisions on the right issues, even at a quick pace. This approach focuses on the essential, but considers everything as a whole.
Results with a rapid response
Agile architecture ensures that the parts of the system being developed are always suitable from your business perspective, and that development will also be agile and cost-effective in the future.
LEAD is a fast framework that responds to change. Good advance planning is important, but it is also important to be able to change direction if you notice something wrong with assumptions during the process.
The planning of digital business solutions often begins by collecting ideas from various stakeholders at e.g. a Digital Workshop. The best ideas are then conceptualised. Conceptualisation leads to the agile production of something called a value package. Ready value packages are assessed from various target perspectives and the results are placed in a development queue to await the development phase.
During the development phase, the product is sent for production. After this, it is of the utmost importance to measure the benefits of the product and to strive to achieve the best possible advantage from the value package. A precise set of indicators is created for assessment.
Data monitoring is extremely important in order to be able to achieve true knowledge management.
In the Lean Digitalisation Framework, planning is not bound to the original brainstorming alone; ideas are collected and created throughout the entire process using tools developed for this purpose.
Does this sound a little too bombastic?
Don’t worry! In practice, LEAD cuts out the business jargon. We are so enthusiastic about the philosophy behind the system that we just want to spread the word.
