BVSSH Community

Helping organisations to deliver better outcomes and foster a more humane world of work 

  • The Better Value Sooner Safer Happier (BVSSH) Community is a global movement, a community of leaders at all levels in all roles wanting to improve business agility to enable Better Value Sooner Safer Happier outcomes in their organisations 
  • The community provides a forum for shared learning about business agility for practitioners and by practitioners.
  • Diverse and inclusive, everyone is welcome. All specialisms. All levels of knowledge. ‘Jargon’ is minimised. Social and environmental responsibility is prioritised.

The BVSSH Awards recognise Team achievement in the field of business agility. Awards are assigned by a panel of independent practitioner judges and reflect excellence in pursuit of continual improvement of Ways of Working, as evidenced through delivery of Better Value Sooner Safer Happier outcomes.  Information about timings, criteria and format will be released during April 2021



  • Globally, organisations are at the beginner level on the topic of business agility. Agile, lean, DevOps are a means to an end, not the end.
  • There are many firms inflicting one size fits all, prescriptive practices, on themselves which is not in line with an agile mindset, both the infliction and the one size fits all. There are better ways of adopting better ways of working.
  • Changing behavioural norms within organisations takes courage, determination and a continual commitment to learning. Certain Patterns can give you a tailwind, and certain Antipatterns can generate a headwind.
