Safe Business Management and SAFe

Safe business management is an approach that focuses on addressing a business’s safety processes. It requires managers to address various influencing factors, such as culture and leadership.

The safety and health policies of a firm should be consistent with the guidelines of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is vital to achieve the desired results. The management team of a company must be also committed to the system’s success. This involves proving that safety is as important as production figures through explicit comments such as performance reviews, bonuses and systems. For instance, LyondellBasell has a policy which states that if OSHA records indicate that injuries are high, managers will not receive bonuses.

Lean-Agile, Scaled Scrum and other Agile frameworks place a top priority on safe business management. They emphasize the roles, artifacts and structures that are appropriate for each scale. The Lean Agile Model, for instance, has a place for safety and quality within each Scrum team. The model also teaches that it is important to keep the safety of employees in mind when designing and creating software.

A successful and secure business management program is an essential component of the technology backbone model (TBM). In fact, TBM and SAFe work together to assist IT provide more value to the company by ensuring superior software and systems cost less.
