Enterprises must learn how to adapt quickly to changing technology and economic conditions or they will become extinct, no matter their size, strength or smarts. Companies that understand the urgency to move and adapt faster and change their ways of working will succeed.
Those that don’t will struggle, or simply go out of business. The business world is littered with examples: Sears, Blockbuster, Kodak, Tower Records, Borders, Palm Computing, BlackBerry, Toys R’ Us, and Compaq were all iconic market leaders that couldn’t adapt to new business models and technology innovations ahead of their competitors.
Digital transformations are changing the world, and in order to survive, Enterprises must learn to adapt quickly, even businesses that don’t consider themselves Information Technology (IT) or software companies, professional services, financial services, manufacturers, healthcare institutions, government agencies, and more, are now all highly dependent on their ability to produce new digital products and services.
While the benefits are clear, before an enterprise can gain SAFe®’s substantial business benefits, it must transform itself into a Lean enterprise.
This transformation requires developing new enterprise competencies, that enable a new style of leadership, new ways of thinking and working and a culture focused on value delivery and continuous improvement.
SAFe® for Lean Enterprises is a knowledge base of proven, integrated principles, practices, and competencies for Lean, Agile, and DevOps.
