TEDxLakeshoreEast - Michael "Doc" Norton - What Business Can Learn From Software Development

Michael "Doc" Norton is Chief Craftsman and a principle for LeanDog. He has over 20 years of software development and leadership experience. He coaches organizations on the values and techniques required to build software that is high quality and delightful to the end user. Software Development is notoriously expensive and unreliable. There are innumerable stories of cost overruns, missed deadlines, and just plain bad software. But what if software is merely a reflection of the organization that built it? What if the software is broken because the company is broken? The structures and practices that make for good software are the same structures and practices that make for good companies. Doc explores a few of these structures and practices and shows how they can be applied to business.About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
