Lean Portfolio Manifesto: Share your thoughts!

Caz Atlassian Team Sep 10, 2019

Hey there, Atlassian Community! I’m Caz Gottlieb, a Product Manager for Jira Align.

Agile for teams originated with a short, but significant document we all know as the Agile Manifesto. This document ignited monumental change by challenging the status quo, redefining team processes, and most importantly, instituting a new culture.

The next phase of agile asks our leaders to embrace agility, keeping a pulse on the reality of work execution. We believe the next phase of organizational agility will be defined by the ability to adopt Lean Agile principles at the Portfolio level. With that, we’re excited to share the Lean Portfolio Manifesto.

Take a look at our blog here to read more. We’d love to get your feedback and use the manifesto as a conversation-starter. Would you amend it or add supporting principles? Share your thoughts with the rest of the community.

It's risky to ask classic organizations to "fail fast" with their finances in order to fully unlock the power of those predictable delivery teams. 

However, with proper guidance, encouragement, and clear visibility into the data as Jira Align provides, trust can be built rapidly to help drive the greater decentralized decision making of funding allowing faster response times to changing market conditions at each layer of the organization.

When the pulse is near real time, and communicated regularly, it becomes very hard to truly fail.

@Jesse Pearlman love how you expounded on this, Jesse. I would still say that failing exists, just on a smaller scale. The impacts of failure become proportional to a company’s batching (batching of work, time, and ultimately investment).

+1000 to both comments. Failing fast is hard to ask but not doing so knocks on the door of bigger failures. 👍
