    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.
