THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EQUILIBRIUM

Tempo de leitura: 2 minutos

Reliably delivering valuable working software frequently is much more than just creating, estimating, prioritising a backlog and developing it iteratively. In order to succeed with lean and agile you have to understand the needed equilibrium of forces among strategy, management and engineering, as well as to have the ability to see and understand the necessary efforts in the whole structure, regardless of your specific role.

Nevertheless, not only we need to understand how to measure success and demonstrate progress throughout the structure, we ought to be able to understand our capacity and organise the flow, qualify demand and maximize the throughput of value to customers. Still, it’s imperative to guarantee quality and the capability to minimize development and maintenance costs. Moreover, we need to retain the ability to safely, reliably and seamlessly deliver our software several times a day, maybe with one click or in a fully automated way. Yet, we must secure performance efficiency and hight availability for our software solutions. Yes, scalability is in there too!

How to deal with all of this in a sustainable manner?

All that is indeed a very hard duty. It involves a lot of disciplines and requires a cross-organisational approach to create the necessary learning and sharing that modern organisations need in order to generate disruptive innovation. They must reinvent themselves every day, and that’s where the Lean Pyramid 3.0 Transformation Framework comes to help.

One of the main fundamentals of lean is the improvement of the system as a whole. Systematically applying systems thinking throughout the organisation is a key point to improve and continuously evolve every aspect of the business, including its people, technology, processes and tools.

The Lean Pyramid provides principles and values that will guide the adoption or the development of techniques and tools to support balanced and incremental improvements, all tailored for each specific environment. For all of the organisation levels, from business strategy, to management, software engineering, product development, operations and other areas that complete the value stream, it’s possible to adopt the Lean Pyramid concepts to improve efficiency and maximize the delivery of value and acquisition of new knowledge.

The Lean Pyramid expresses the need for the right equilibrium of efforts in each of these areas in order to achieve lasting systemic improvements. Among the most important benefits, is the continuous deliver of value to customers, thus creating a so important and fundamental Trust. Other benefits will come along: responsibility, self-management, cohesion, respect, ownership, discipline, agility, strong relationships, innovation, teamwork, joy.

The Lean Pyramid was created to help you to transform your own history. Enjoy!
