The SAFe Principles

The SAFe Principles

1. Take an Economic View

If the solution doesn’t meet the customer’s economic goals, then the long-term viability of the solution is uncertain. Two primary aspects of achieving optimum economic outcomes: Deliver early and deliver often, and understand the economic trade-off parameters for each program and value stream.

Corporate Culture and Change

When an organization identifies the change needed and chooses a change process, the next step is to understand the culture and political environment in which the change will occur.

Enablers for good leadership: Enabler #6: Deploying the Body Language of Leadership

What is leadership presence? How did great leaders get it? Can it be learned? Whatever it is, it’s important. Without it, no one listens. Without it, our opinions get no respect. Without it, we’re not taken seriously. Without it, it’s hard to be a leader. Belle Linda Halpern and Kathy Lubar define presence in their book Leadership Presence as: “the ability to connect authentically with the thoughts and feelings of others.” Having a commitment to a clear and inspiring goal, while being aware of your own story and being attuned to the story of your listener are important elements of this presence. However, the physical things we do with our body when we are trying to communicate need to be considered additionally.

Enablers for good leadership: Enabler #4: Cultivating Narrative Intelligence

Why do People Change Their Minds? “How quick come the reasons for approving what we like!” – Jane Austen. Understanding why people change their minds is essential to leadership. Why do we decide to devote our lives to one thing or another for example? People don’t sit down and make a rational analysis of all the possible things that they could do with their lives. Rather, their eyes light on some particular course of action that caches their attention, and then the reasons why that course makes sense come quickly.
