A New Framework That Spans the Language of Business and Technology
Mastering large-scale software delivery is no longer an option. The gap between modern technical practices and the traditional business organizational paradigm has widened. A new approach is needed for the majority of the world’s organizations to thrive.
The Flow Framework®, created by Dr. Mik Kersten, addresses the pivotal challenge to crack open the engineering and business black boxes, define a common language to bridge the gap between business and technology and optimize the flow of business value to customers.
“As startups disrupt every market and tech giants pull further ahead of entrenched businesses, the majority of enterprise IT organizations are facing an existential crisis. Either they quickly become much better at software delivery, or they risk becoming a digital relic.”
