Lean V’s User Experience

Looking into Lean, and i cant believe how closely its principals align with UX principals

from http://www.lean.org/WhatsLean/Principles.cfm

5 principles of Lean thinking

  • Specify Value from the perspective of the final customer
  • Identify the Value Stream and eliminate every step, action, or practice that does not add value
  • Make the remaining steps occur in a tight, integrated sequence so that value Flows smoothly to the customer
  • Let Customers Pull products rather than push products to them
  • Pursue Perfection through continuous improvement

if that’s not UX i dont know what is – not sure if value stream mapping makes you more money than UX. I might even change professions !
