LACE

 

            Lean-Agile Center of 

            Excellence Workshop 

                          Drive enterprise adoption of Lean-Agile

                          practices and business results

The LACE is a small, dedicated team of leaders and change agents who are responsible for driving real and lasting organizational change.
 
An effective Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a critical success factor differentiating organizations fully committed to adopting Lean-Agile practices and achieving significant business results from those practicing Agile in name only.
 
The challenge is that most of the people qualified to drive change have full-time responsibilities in their current roles. While a significant portion of their time can perhaps be devoted to supporting the change, a smaller, more dedicated group of people is needed to drive SAFe® adoption throughout the organization
