CMMI® Institute to Host Capability Counts 2016 Conference
Andreas Kramvis, Honeywell Vice Chairman speaks to Building a High Performance Culture through Software Capability
PITTSBURGH--(Business Wire/Korea Newswire) March 3, 2016 -- CMMI® Institute announced the lineup for its annual Capability Counts conference (http://cmmiinstitute.com/conferences) 10-11 May in Annapolis, MD. The conference is expected to provide more than 350 global performance improvement professionals the opportunity to connect, learn, and share their challenges, expertise, and success stories as they build capability and improve maturity in their organizations.
“We are excited to serve our community worldwide with events that reflect the dynamic nature of today’s global work environment and share new approaches on how to connect strategy to action and drive high performance and agility in organizations,” said Kirk Botula, CEO of CMMI Institute.
As a globally-adopted capability improvement framework, CMMI distinguishes building capability as a top priority for companies to improve performance and speed past the competition. According to a 2015 McKinsey & Company survey, the strategic importance of capabilities is a significant differentiator for high performing organizations and is driven by customer demand and strategic importance. The survey reports that half of all executives say that capability building is a top priority.
The Capability Counts conference is designed to help organizations and professionals hone their capability-building skills. This two-day event is complete with networking opportunities, engaging keynotes, collaborative workshops, and informative case study presentations. Attendees meet with industry thought leaders from around the world and hear success stories that focus on how to build organizational capability to deliver superior results. Additionally, exhibitors display a variety of tools, methods, and services available to help organizations with their capability improvement efforts.
Andreas Kramvis, Vice Chairman of Honeywell (http://goo.gl/AqN8wr), will deliver the opening keynote on Building a High Performance Culture through Software Capability. Kramvis will speak to advancing Honeywell’s software initiative through improved development processes and driving expansion. Kirk Grothe, Chief Executive Officer of Livanta (http://goo.gl/gP9byl), will feature as the second-day keynote and will touch on the role of organizational maturity in driving innovation and competitive advantage. In addition, Eric Rongley, Chief Executive Officer of Bleum (http://goo.gl/8ML1k7), is set to be the afternoon speaker; his expertise comes from setting the strategic direction for growth and development while building high performance software centers.
