On the broad relevance of the lean data framework, Shah comments, “Lean Data can work in any sector: business, civil society, government. It can be spearheaded by any department: marketing, advocacy, engineering, product, design, compliance, privacy, legal, customer support. All it requires is a commitment to make data decisions thoughtfully.”
