In a recent Forrester post Boris Evelson talks about one company’s ‘333’ rule which they use to decide how far to complete a BI project – http://blogs.forrester.com/business_process/2010/03/333-rule-to-keep-your-bi-apps-in-check.html

By waiting to see how much, and for how long, a BI solution is used before taking the effort to fully bake it, the company can deliver projects quicker and make better use of its resources. This is a good example of Lean Manufacturing in practice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lean_manufacturing
