This appendix contains chapters that supplement the book or provide a way to step back and reflect on the state of software development.
Preparing Executives, Directors, Managers, and Product Managers for Agile. This is a set of articles and videos to read and watch prior to undertaking an Agile transformation – whether it be FLEX or another approach.
How FLEX is different from Agile approaches. The best way to learn something new often is to contrast it with something known. This page describes the foundation of FLEX by focusing on those concepts and activities that are mostly not in Scrum, SAFe®, and Kanban. While reading, ask yourself if you agree with them.
NoteTwo online FLEX courses are now being offered – FLEX for SAFe, and Adopting FLEX (the first course in becoming a FLEX trainer). If you want to learn about how to adopt FLEX in your organization please contact the author, Al Shalloway.
