Agile at Scale Generative Principles, an Alternative to Scaled Frameworks
This session introduces a pluralistic approach to achieving Agility at scale, that is inspired by principles. It is informed by the theory and empirical evidence, and it escapes the 1-framework by-the-book prison. The approach presented avoids the shortcomings and the missteps we all well know of the recipes-based copy-paste approaches that are common nowadays. And it actually works.
<<As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods.>> ~ Harrington Emerson
