Agile and lean office are so deeply interwoven that if you are doing agile you are doing lean, and vice-versa. Those considering
process change will likely find the description of the interrelatedness interesting and enlightening. The question should
I use Lean office instead of Agile office is based on a false premise because office environments are complex systems. There
can be thousands of integration points as information flows along a value stream. As a result it is almost impossible to understand
in detail how a change to one part of a value stream will impact the rest of the system-wide value streams of the organization.
The Agile and Lean office approach use a program of continuous performance improvement. This approach does not try to accomplish
too much at once and risk complete failure, but to make an incremental change to a value stream, wait for the system to settle
down, fully understand the system-wide impact of the changes, and then decide what new change to make.
