Do Something — Arlo Guthrie

Sharing this picture that I took from the Woodstock Summer of ‘69 museum…

I believe that this message by Arlo Guthrie captures the spirit of SAFe principle #8: Unlock the intrinsic motivation of knowledge workers.

It conveys strong sense of purpose and autonomy.

Once unlocked, there is no way it can be stopped: people could actually get up in the morning, and DO SOMETHING, and join with other people to do something that would change history…

Ok… I got carried away … but that is the team spirit … the esprit de corps … that is needed for us to enthusiastically and passionately create something that matters… something of value… something that makes a difference.

Do something in alignment with what you desire and believe in. Do it with love and purpose. With enthusiasm. With passion. Be innovative. Take risks. Today.

My new book is coming to, available for purchase, this October 15, 2023! 

SAFe 6.0 Practice — The creative application or use of Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) 6.0 and Lean Agile.

Unshackle yourself and your organization from the “by the book” approach to using SAFe® and Lean Agile. Instead, be guided by fundamentals: Principles and Values.

This book is full of stories, pictures, principles, and values to illustrate the essence of SAFe® and Lean Agile — understanding the essence is the key to the shackles that are holding you back from delivering that universal language called “value” and making SAFe® and Lean Agile successfully applied to your own unique context… whatever that context may be.

SAFe® and Lean Agile are versatile Ways of Working/Living — it is beyond Software… it is for Life as well. Let this book show you this versatility.

The “Aha!” moment that you will get from this book could be the missing piece that makes things start to click together for you.

If I’ve pegged you right, get this book! I’ve authored this book —  SAFe 6.0 Practice  —  for you. Time to break through what’s holding you back.

SAFe 6.0 Practice , my new book, will be available for purchase this October 15, 2023, on
