Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 170! Happy fifth anniversary from Amsterdam!
The SPaMCAST 170 features my interview Hillel Glazer. We discussed his book High Performance Operations: Leverage Compliance to Lower Costs, Increase Profits, and Gain Competitive Advantage and many other topics like the CMMI and Agile.
Hillel Glazer is recognized as the world’s leading authority on introducing lean and agile concepts into the compliance-driven world. He’s helped companies of all sizes and industries around the world successfully streamline their operations, increase value, and expose and eliminate practices that prevent them from achieving their performance goals. And, he does so while simultaneously accounting for all the external compliance pressures on their operations.
Hillel’s professional passion is to work with companies motivated to achieve world-class operations and excellence. His diverse experience base includes aerospace/defense and systems engineering, large and small consulting practices, Federal agencies, dot-com operations and financial, insurance, medical and transportation systems development and support. Having started in manufacturing where he learned the fundamentals of lean production, for more than the most recent decade, as a consultant, Hillel’s been successfully pioneering the introduction of lean philosophies, methods and techniques into businesses and industries otherwise believed to be either too chaotic or too highly restricted in freedom by their compliance and regulation requirements to be able to adopt high performance approaches.
Hillel is an in-demand speaker, presenter, and facilitator. (See where he’ll show up next.) He is widely read, broadly published, and appears worldwide on the topics pertaining to operational excellence in compliance-driven industries. His work appears in many publications including periodicals and the texts, CMMI for Services, 2nd Edition, CMMI for Development, 3rd Edition, and Integrating CMMI and Agile Development.
His Baltimore-based company, Entinex, has a global reach that focuses on generating powerful results for high performance operations among companies motivated to be lean, agile, and achieve world-class levels of operational excellence. He lives in the Baltimore suburbs with his fabulous wife and four amazing children.
