Information Efficiency

Need for Information Efficiency

If your organization is like most, it invests in building market leadership, but often neglects the final expression of leadership – the consistent efficiency of its information. As a result, your business can suffer.


The more useful your information, the more loyal your customers and productive your teams. For example, the most successful sales people usually provide customers with the most valuable information.


Your lines of business are responsible for information efficiency.


Currently, organizations have few mechanisms in place to ensure the consistent usefulness and value of their information. Is this because they don't know about Lean Information?


Example: Introduction to a Swiss multinational's conference on Contract Simplification:

“In today’s world, we are getting too much information. It is too complex, and we are getting it too fast…. Unfortunately, an end to dysfunctional communication is not in sight.”


We are a technology-independent communication service helping you best use your information to gain revenue, increase productivity and mitigate information risk.


We work with your lines of business and information governance teams to help you meet your efficiency needs. The basic principles are the same for all information.


LEAN INFORMATION makes your life easier. We support your immediate needs and re-skills your teams so that everyone creates and uses information that is:

  • Relevant

  • Definite

  • Correct

  • Complete

Lean Information applies several disciplines including Lean Manufacturing and Management; Information – Management, Governance and Quality; Data Quality; Information Design; and Agile development.
