FOSTERING INNOVATION WITH LEAN STARTUP AND SAFE
The marketplace is changing so quickly that we need a paradigm shift in how we enable innovation in the large enterprise. When an innovation culture is relegated exclusively to the startup, our biggest brands—those who employ most of the people and drive most of the world's economy—are at risk for their very survival. 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 enterprise scale. And now, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and other industry trends bring new mindsets and thinking to bear on this challenge.
