Speed of Advance

Marty Groover

Speed of Advance (SOA): the speed of a ship anticipated along an intended track; the average speed required to arrive at a destination at a specified time.

In the navy, nothing is left to chance. Every strategy is tested, every resource utilized with minimal excess and remarkable efficiency. This streamlined convergence of people, process, and technology is the pinnacle of productivity—and its benefits resonate far beyond military endeavors.

As a surface warfare officer, Marty Groover spent more than two decades leading an intricate operational symphony of communications processes, computer systems, and weapons programs. Now, in Speed of Advance, Marty shares what he experienced in the navy firsthand: how to harness the power of technology to drive untouchable results. By eliminating damaging silos and increasing skill sets, Marty shows you how to create an enhanced, synchronized system between technology and the people who use it—a process that will lead you into the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Lean. Impactful. Intersected. These are the businesses that will thrive in the challenges of Industry 4.0. This book will show you how to take the first step in the right direction, not by replacing people with machines but by learning how to truly work as one.
