Driving Innovation in the Enterprise with Lean Thinking and SAFe®

Get the report

The marketplace is changing so quickly that we need a paradigm shift in how we enable innovation in the large enterprise. And yet, sometimes it seems that the larger and more successful the company, the more difficult it is to innovate.

Fortunately, Lean and Agile development gives us many of the tools we need to apply that momentum to new innovations, and to do so at scale. And now, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and other industry trends bring new mindsets and thinking to bear on this challenge.

In this webinar, Dean Leffingwell illustrates how seemingly disparate practices — like Agile, Scaled Agile, Lean Startup, Lean UX, DevOps and Continuously Delivery — need not be separate initiatives, but rather a continuum that helps enterprises deliver more innovative solutions at a velocity they could only imagine before. From Minimum Viable Product to Minimum Marketable Feature, to the-smallest-package-that-can-be-efficiently-released-into-production, Dean discusses how reducing batch size enables fast feedback and is the one elemental practice that binds them all.
