Measuring Organizational Improvement

We know that DevOps principles create higher-performing organizations but it's hard to know what's improving when. When your organizations are built from silos and data is buried, conversations are opinion driven. Thinking and working as value streams means teams obsess about the value their work creates to the customer and that they can measure how their experiments accelerate its flow to be realized in the hands of the customer.
