Scale collaboration, not process. If you're trying to use agile and lean at the program level, you've heard of several approaches, all about scaling processes. If you duplicate what one team does for several teams, you get bloat, not delivery. Instead of scaling the process, scale everyone's collaboration. With autonomy, collaboration, and exploration, teams and program level people can decide how to apply agile and lean to their work.

"This is my book review. It is a review of the book. It is not a book, just the review of the book. The book is not a review, it is the subject of the review. The book can exist without a review but the review is derivative and can't exist without the book. See chart."

This book may make a great reference tool but it lacked story. It was a well told glossary but lacked the essential elements of an engaging educational experience, reader emotion and empathy.

I wanted to like it and I stayed to the end, relying on "I've come this far, I'll stick with it!"
