This chapter gave an overview of the Lean-Agile mindset, which is critical for supporting Lean-Agile development at scale across the entire enterprise.
The key takeaways from this chapter are as follows:
The ultimate responsibility for the success of the enterprise, and thereby any significant change to the way of working, lies with management.
To begin the Lean-Agile journey of change and instill new habits into the culture, leaders and managers should adopt the mindset, principles, and values provided in SAFe’s House of Lean and Agile Manifesto.
The SAFe House of Lean consists of the following elements:
Goal (the roof): Value
Pillar 1: Respect for People and Culture
Pillar 2: Flow
Pillar 3: Innovation
Pillar 4: Relentless Improvement
The Manifesto for Agile Software Development has four simple values and twelve principles that define what it means to be Agile, and it is often referred to as the Agile Manifesto.
The Agile Manifesto does indeed scale, even though some principles require a somewhat expanded perspective.
