The Lean-Agile Framework reflects Net Objectives’ experience of what companies must do to deliver value effectively. We believe the aim is business agility – having the ability to realize value quickly with high quality, predictability and sustainability. The framework is based on our distillation of the laws of Lean-Agile Software Development. It represents an evolving understanding in how both software development and IT organizations work and how they should be driven by and be integrated with business. It is based on an integration of the Lean and Agile mindset with proven practices that we have consistently found to enhance effectiveness of an organizations’ efforts.
The Lean-Agile Framework was created and continues to evolve by attending to what works and what doesn’t work. This scientific approach is in stark contrast to the common approach of defining a set of values and practices that one sticks to until the desired results are achieved. Instead the Lean-Agile Framework provides a method for organizations to transform themselves while they learn better methods to realize value. The Lean-Agile Framework can be used as a context for implementing existing methods in order to extend the learning that has already taken place.
The picture illustrates the overall value stream / flow of work from vision conceptualization to vision realization and the roles and practices involved at each level of this value stream. The resources on the portal fit within this overall framework.
