I’ve created a new design for my book and am pretty excited about it. There are five parts to it:
- Part 1: Workbook: understanding what’s required for flow in your organization
- Part 2: Workbook: Using FLEX to transform your organization
- Part 3: Topics in depth
- Part 4: Using FLEX w/SAFe
- Part 5: Resources on the Net Objectives Portal
The first two parts cover the basics of FLEX. They present what the effective enterprise of the future looks like, giving a vision for the transformation. They are designed as workbooks to guide readers via a way to learn by doing. They are also relatively short so they represent a quick overview of the entire approach.
Part 3 provides an in-depth explanation of the topics used in the first parts. Part 4 discusses how to take advantage of FLEX’s Lean portfolio & prod management approach for those using SAFe.
The last part of the book is online, providing the latest ideas and practices we are coming up with.
If you are looking for a more effective approach than either SAFe or LeSS, I invite you both to look at the book as it is uploaded. If you are interested in using it to help with your own adoption, let me know as I am looking to work with a few people while it is being written
