Lean Enterprise Agile Framework - A Systems Thinking approach to scale deliverables

Lean Enterprise Agile Framework (leaf) – A framework to scale delivery


It’s about “Being Agile”, not following agile or practicing agile or doing agile. That’s what you have heard. If I were the sponsor or a developer or a user or a buyer of a product, all I would care is about the product. So if you ask me, I would rather focus on scaling delivery of products rather than scaling processes or teams. Leaf is a conversation starter and a systems thinking approach to deliver products, if required even at scale.


In this 90-minute workshop, Satisha will let you work on improving the delivery of a hypothetical organization failing to deliver at scale by applying leaf principles and patterns.


Outline/Structure of the Workshop

  • A story about an Organization(Let’s call it MiddleOvers) missing deliverables or under delivering
  • When do you need to change?
  • How do you get started?
  • What is a System?
  • What is Systems Thinking
  • Apply Systems Thinking approach to identify changes to MiddleOvers to improve the delivery
  • Apply Systems Thinking approach to understand the impact of changes.
  • Apply Systems Thinking approach to design Organization to sustain changes at Organization level
  • Patterns for addressing delivery issues at Organization level.

Learning Outcome

  • Learn to focus on delivery than adopting a specific process
  • Learn to design a Process to scale deliverable for an Organization
  • Learn about practices and patterns required to scale deliverables from speaker's experience

    Hi Satisha,

    Thanks for the proposal. Few things before we can take it forward...

    1. A link to one your videos to complete the proposal.
    2. Pre-requisites - There are couple of pre-requisites for the the audience. I see the risk of audience showing up without going throus these. How much is the the impact on the learning outcome for the audience and two if a majority shows up without the pre-reqs completed how would that impact effective completing of the workshop.
    3. Attendees not more than 40 people - The conference will be run in 3 to 4 parallel tracks with capacity of each room about 125 - 150. Limitinh yo just 40 will be a show stopper from the track management point of view.

    If you think the above 3 can be addressed then I would suggest you to get back to us with the updated proposal.

      Hi Ravi,


      While 1 and 2 can be addressed, I thought this was a 90 minute workshop, where people do hands on work and learn by doing. If the session is going to have 100+ people, I don't think it would be effective. Sorry!

        Hi Satisha,

        I thought as much. You are right that workshop is of 90 min. Since there will be a lot of people we need to plan the sessions for scaling the conference point of view as well. We encourage you post any other proposal for other topics.
