About the Resource

In this inaugural volume of the Enterprise Technology Leadership Journal, we present seven insightful papers that explore various aspects of technology leadership and its impact on organizations:

  1. “The Application of Industrial DevOps using Digital Twins” by Dr. Suzette Johnson and Robin Yeman: This paper delves into the integration of Industrial DevOps principles with digital twin technology to create a seamless, real-time development environment for cyber-physical systems. The authors discuss the benefits, challenges, and future implications of this approach, with an emphasis on space missions.
  2. “The Digital Mirror” by Bill Bensing and Alex Honor: The authors explore the concept of digital twins in the context of governance, risk, compliance, and assurance (GRCA) activities. They discuss how digital twins can transform GRCA practices, enabling real-time compliance monitoring, predictive analytics, and prescriptive actions.
  3. “Enterprise GenAI Delivery Patterns” by Damon Edwards, John Willis, John Rauser, and Patrick Debois: The authors examine the intersection of Generative AI (GenAI) and DevOps, exploring how organizations can leverage GenAI to enhance software delivery processes and how DevOps practices can be applied to improve GenAI delivery.
  4. “Happier Leaders” by Courtney Kissler and Paul Gaffney: This paper focuses on how leaders can cultivate a more positive, productive, and engaging work environment. The authors emphasize the importance of emotional intelligence, employee well-being, and an outcome-driven culture in modern leadership practices.
  5. “Measuring the Value of Your Internal Developer Platform Investments” by Sridhar Kotagiri and Ajay Chankramath: The authors provide a comprehensive framework for articulating, measuring, and communicating the value of Internal Developer Platforms (IDPs). They discuss the challenges of quantifying IDP value and offer practical guidance for securing stakeholder buy-in and demonstrating ROI.
  6. “A Practical, Step-by-Step Guide to Wiring a Winning Organization from the Middle” by Maria Mentzer: This paper presents a practical approach for middle managers to drive transformational change in their organizations by implementing high-velocity organizational learning capabilities. The author shares a five-step recipe based on personal experiences and the work of Dr. Steven Spear.
  7. “Wiring for Flow” by Steve Pereira and John Rauser: This paper explores how organizations can be viewed as complex networks, similar to computer networks, and how principles from digital networking can be applied to improve organizational flow and outcomes. The authors discuss the challenges of managing complexity in organizational networks and introduce a model of network complexity based on state, surface, and speed. They then explore three key concepts from computer networking—modularity, topology, and convergence—and illustrate how these can be applied to address organizational complexity and enhance collaboration, scalability, and adaptability. The paper provides insights into how leaders can leverage digital networking principles to design more effective organizational structures and drive better conversations, decisions, and outcomes.
