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?
