In this Pivotal Conversations podcast, Coté takes a look at how Cloud Native principals are permeating all disciplines of business by talking to Pivotal’s head of HR, Joe Militello. The pair talk about how Pivotal tries to make all processes lean, including hiring—where Joe’s organization is able to eliminate wasted cycles and grant offers to worthy candidates in 24 hours. The conversation is an interesting lense to look at how Cloud Native processes can transform all functions of the enterprise, including non-technical domains such as sales, marketing, and HR.
To support the growing demands of enterprises looking to use software as a competitive advantage, Pivotal has acquired three companies and added an Entrepreneur-in-Residence over the last two months. Starting with CloudCredo (December 2015), Slice of Lime (January 2016) and bringing Eric Ries on board as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Pivotal’s is excited to announce today that we have acquired Neo, a provider of agile development services based in Singapore and San Francisco, in a strategic initiative to extend our ability to help companies around the globe.
Four of our most respected executives will be joining the collective brain-trust next week at Techweek LA. They will be sharing insights on topics like software transformation, lean start-ups, and user experience design as well as participating in the panel at the screening of Code Documentary: Debugging the Gender Gap. Please join us, along with leaders from Pandora, IBM, Techstars, Core Innovation Capital, ZestFinance, and BandPage—let's talk about what the digital future looks like.
Large companies such as GE and Intuit have used Eric Ries' "The Lean Startup" to help their organizations build more innovative working cultures. With his next book, "The Leader's Guide," offered exclusively via a Kickstarter campaign, Eric provides new insights on implementing and making the most of his methods. Pivotal is aligned with Eric on corporate transformation—allowing companies to emerge as modern, successful software organizations. As explained in this post, Eric’s vision and Pivotal’s proven software development products and services will help lead the industry towards a dramatically more effective and innovative future, helping companies compete more effectively with the most innovative and disruptive of start-ups.
In this post, one of our Lean experts, Janice Fraser, covers two of her most valuable insights from teaching senior managers at the White House. Heading into her workshop at the Lean Startup Conference next week, the insights provide some useful lessons in applying lean principles—acting on what we learned and changing behavior.
Companies large and small are looking to innovate for growth, and the Lean Start Up Conference is an epicenter for sharing the knowledge and experience of getting new products to market. In this post, presenter and Pivotal Product Manager, Lauren Gilchrist, shares the lessons learned on her talk about the fear of shipping imperfect products and outlines the other places you can find us, including our all-day workshop.
