The Manifesto for Agile software development does not have an opinion about agile at scale involving multiple teams, multiple products  and the whole organisation. Scaled agile frameworks fall short of achieving sustainable agility: some are a band-aid solution, others are deleterious. None of them can be a substitute for knowledge, understanding, and experience. Most companies that succeed in achieving agility at scale grew their ways of working internally, experimenting-learning-adapting-evolving. This session present and discuss a list of generative principles inspired by lean and agile principles, the metaphor of organisations as living organisms, and the theory of socio-technical Complex Adaptive Systems that suggests an alternative approach to scaled frameworks.
