Flow framework, a new twig in the agile forest

The goal of the Flow frameworktm (developed by Mike Kersten) is to bring Scrum and Agile concepts to the business while providing a higher level of abstraction than agile teams work with day to day. The framework scales the three ways of DevOps – flow, feedback, and continuous learning – to the entire business. User stories and story points are layered over by the four Flow items: features (new business value), defects (quality), risk (security, governance, compliance), and debt (removal of impediments to future delivery). Flow distribution makes priorities visible. Using the Flow Framework if a scaling framework, such as SAFe, LeSS or Nexus, is in place, could lead to greater success.

  • From project & cost centers to product value streams
  • From siloes & proxy services to flow metrics & business results
  • From fragmented value streams to integrated value stream network

In my bird’s eye view I positioned the Flow framework in the product targeted box. I see the Flow framework as a sort of add on for SAFe, LeSS, Nexus, et cetera.Agile Myths Busted (webinar PMI Bulgaria, Belgium, IPMA NL, 200429) v1.0
