Agile Engineering for High-Performance Systems
The Executive Challenge
In most competitive markets, products differentiate along performance dimensions, not just feature dimensions. It’s not only what you do; it’s how well you do it that matters. Think about a Ferrari and a Yugo. Both cars transport you to and from the grocery store and around town. Yet one costs over twenty times the other! The reason: they differentiate along many performance dimensions (and not just from 0 to 60!).
For companies seeking market leadership, excelling in performance can mean the difference between emerging as the leader and falling to the back of the pack. But, it’s not only system performance that must excel, it’s also the performance of the development team delivering the system. People must work together, in alignment, to deliver winning solutions that create the foundations for profitable products and organizations.
