The implementation patterns are those patterns created outside of the flex system that can be wrapped by FLEX. The diagrams showing how they fit into FLEX in no way implies any endorsement of this by the authors of the methods being wrapped.

FLEX and FAST Agile

This enables practitioners to take advantage of FAST while getting the advanced portfolio and product management of FLEX.
