Scale collaboration, not process.

If you're trying to use agile and lean at the program level, you've heard of several approaches, all about scaling processes. If you duplicate what one team does for several teams, you get bloat, not delivery. Instead of scaling the process, scale everyone's collaboration.

With autonomy, collaboration, and exploration, teams and program level people can decide how to apply agile and lean to their work.

Learn to collaborate around deliverables, not meetings. Learn which measurements to use and how to use those measures to help people deliver more of what you want (value) and less of what you don't want (work in progress). Create an environment of servant leadership and small-world networks. Learn to enable autonomy, collaboration, and exploration across the organization and deliver your product.

Scale collaboration with agile and lean program management and deliver your product.

About the Author

People know me as the "Pragmatic Manager." I provide frank advice--often with a little humor--for your tough problems. I suggest you think about your context first, because your circumstances are unique. I help leaders and managers do reasonable things that work.

I write an email newsletter, the Pragmatic Manager, and two blogs on, and a personal blog on with its own newsletter. Please take a look and sign up for the newsletters. I write articles for all kinds of places, including Better Software, IEEE Software, and Cutter IT Journal to name just three. I've keynoted on five continents. I'm not sure I want to go to Antarctica.

I can help you create projects, teams, and organizations that work.
