What Do High Performing Organizations Have in Common? By @Anders_Wallgren | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Hear from MIT’s Dr. Steve Spear

Some organizations are just doing better than others. They achieve exceptional levels of performance and market leadership - from time to market, quality, safety, affordability, reliability, dependability and adaptability-that it puts their rivals to shame.

At the recent DevOps Enterprise Summit, MIT's Dr. Steve Spear gave an excellent talk on Creating High Velocity Organizations. Spear shared his years of research into these high performing organizations across a variety of industries - including manufacturing, high tech, heavy industry, product design and production, and services, such as healthcare delivery. He studied Toyota, Alcoa, the U.S. Naval Reactor program, and others - to distill for us what it is that makes them so much better?

Watch my short 5 minutes interview with Steve Spear at DOES15 to learn what drives the success of these companies, and what software and DevOps have to do with it.

Also, check out the recording of Steve’s talk to learn about the capabilities and attributes (cultural, structural, and management methods) common to these high-performing organizations, and the impact these have on the competitive advantage and bottom line of businesses today.
