About LSA & Our Team

Lean Scaled Architects (LSA) delivers full-service Digital Transformation services for more effective use of technology, but — to be sustainable beyond implementation — true Digital value needs more than just cloud, code and apps. In addition to technology investment advisory, LSA helps people use the technology investments for faster, agile value delivery — e.g., chunking and prioritizing work, and improving / automating business processes. LSA does this by leveraging its “Digital Formula” — a leadership-transparent strategy-to-execution approach, with tight integration between its services.

Lean Scaled Architects was started by Mike Idengren in October 2020, as a full-service digital transformation firm.  Mike previously worked across most industries as a Director of consulting at KPMG, and he grew LSA to include a diverse team that “thinks different” – with business / IT backgrounds and including experience in different Digital practice domains and across commercial/federal/state/local.
