The integration of a type of Information System (IS) isn’t a sufficient condition for improving business performance. In fact, relations between IS and performance must be considered in light of how management implemented in the company. Correspondence between supply and demand informational becomes an essential component to consider. In this context, we initially try to bring out the salient stylized facts about the IS lean enterprises especially in their managerial practices and information. To do this, we will rely on the one hand, an analysis of the literature-and multi-bloated on this theme, one of whose characteristics is that it remains unfinished. On the other hand, the use ROEX in our consulting activities at several companies operating in various industries. To understand how the IS firms can match with some managerial practices; our article is organized in two main areas:

- The first line will be dedicated to delineate the contours of the informational paradigm lean and confront the practices identified in our consulting activities

- The second line will show the place assigned to ICT in these organizations, their use and impact on the control of operators and the knowledge sharing between internal stakeholders.
