Safe Business Management and SAFe

Safe business management is a process that is focused on the safety of the operational procedures of a company. It requires managers to address many influencing aspects, including culture, training and leadership.

The health and safety guidelines of a business should be in line with the guidelines of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This is essential to achieve the desired results. The management team of a business must also be devoted to the system’s success. This means demonstrating that safety is as important as production figures through direct feedback, performance reviews and bonus systems. LyondellBasell for instance has a policy in place that states that when OSHA injuries are very high management will not be eligible for bonuses.

Lean-Agile, Scaled Scrum and other Agile frameworks place a top importance on business management that is safe. In particular, they emphasize the roles, structures, and artifacts that are appropriate for every scale. For example, the Lean-Agile model includes an obligation to ensure safety and quality for each Scrum team. The model also teaches to keep the safety of employees in mind when designing and creating software.

A successful and safe business management program is a key component of the Technology Backbone Model (TBM). In reality, TBM and SAFe work together to aid in helping IT deliver more value to the business by ensuring that superior software and systems cost less. This article on changing IT into an actual partner explains the TBM-SAFe relationship.
