Agile Rising is a Flow Framework implementation partner, with experience helping large enterprises organize around value, integrate the DevSecOps toolchain, and present actionable metric. The Flow Framework bridges the gap between technologists and business stakeholders, providing the methodology and the vocabulary to systematically relieve the bottlenecks that are slowing software delivery down and impacting business results. Based on Dr. Mik Kersten’s book, Project to Product, The Flow Framework helps leaders shift from a project-centric mindset to a product-oriented organization that realizes more value and responds faster to market changes. The Flow Framework is a structured prescriptive approach to Value Stream Management for software, product delivery, and business. It identifies where work is flowing in your product value streams and where it’s slowing down so that you can decide how to address those bottlenecks. It also equips leaders with non-technical (and non-Agile) language to use with business stakeholders to set priorities and measure outcomes.
Agile Rising provides the following following Flow Framework trainings:
- Introduction to the Flow Framework – 4 hours
- Implementing Flow Framework Workshop – 2 days
Leaders are facing increased pressure to deliver faster, better products. The journey of true Enterprise Business Agility℠ (EBA) is one that requires an overall transformation strategy that combines lean portfolio management, organizational value stream design, lean product development, leadership and culture, measurement, DevOps and other elements. The Enterprise Business Agility℠ Model provides guidance for leading a successful enterprise business agility transformation based on seven key pillars.
The definition of business agility is “the ability to adapt and change, learn and pivot, deliver at speed, and thrive in a competitive market.”
– Sally Elatta & Evan Leybourn

The goal of Technology Business Management (TBM) is to improve the collaboration between business, finance, and IT to maximize the delivery of value and the return on investment. Digital transformation is about enabling the enterprise to move at the speed of the market, respond to unexpected events and opportunities, drive innovation, and capitalize on emerging technologies. But, this collaboration between business and IT can only exist if there is transparency into the real costs and returns, and informed decisions about the actual costs of technology investments. Business leaders need to manage spending, consumption, and performance.
Agile Rising is actively involved in the TBM Council’s Agile Working group and can provide unique guidance for implementing TBM and Agile at scale at the same time via the TBM Executive Foundations course.
