ALIGN BUSINESS VALUE - Align and focus agile teams on delivering business value to the enterprise. PERFORM VISIONING - Frequently communicate portfolio, project, and team vision on continuous basis. REDUCE SIZE - Reduce sizes of agile portfolios, acquisitions, products, programs, projects, and teams. ACT SMALL - Get large agile teams to act, behave, collaborate, communicate, and perform like small ones. BE SMALL - Get small projects to act, behave, and collaborate like small ones instead of trying to act larger. ACT COLLOCATED - Get virtual distributed teams to act, behave, communicate and perform like collocated ones. USE SMALL ACQUISITION BATCHES - Organize suppliers to rapidly deliver new capabilities and quickly reprioritize. USE LEAN-AGILE CONTRACTS - Use collaborative contracts to share responsibility instead of adversarial legal ones. USE ENTERPRISE AUTOMATION - Automate everything with Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, & DevOps.
