  abstract     = {The SKA Observatory is approaching the construction of the SKA1 radio telescopes, concluding the pre-construction phase in December 2019. A bridging phase has commenced before construction commences during which lean-agile processes, structures and practices are being prototyped. By the end of the bridging phase we plan to have pivoted from a document based, earned value, stage gated set of processes arranged around pre-construction consortia to a code based, value flow driven, lean-agile set of processes unified around the Scaled Agile Framework. During the bridging process we have onboarded more than 10 agile development teams and in this paper we describe the processes, the main technical and cultural challenges and the preliminary results of adopting a lean-agile culture within the SKA organization.},
