Larry Cooper and Jen Stone have created what I consider to be the first properly "post-agile" structure for us to use. We original agilists advocated delivering value, but stopped there. Larry and Jen show us how to handle the consequences: to deliver, operate and measure value. Operations is the logical consequence of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Props to them for having articulated it so clearly. -- Dr. Alistair Cockburn, co-author of the Agile Manifesto
