Creating Fusion at a Fortune 15 Company with 50K Employees

December 20, 2017 Pivotal Software

How Cardinal Health builds revolutionary tech.

Jim Shingler, Director, Office of Development Transformation at Cardinal Health, likes to joke that Cardinal Health is the Fortune 15 company most people have never heard of. Jim works on the FUSE team at Cardinal, a scrappy, agile group that figures out how to enable the Internet of Things to keep aging loved ones in their home longer, living healthier lives. Imagine if your elderly parent missed taking their medication, wouldn’t you or their doctor want to be automatically notified? This revolutionary tech is being built by a team of three people at Cardinal Health — but that team is growing.

“Sometimes the fastest answer to a problem is to try and do something.”
—Jim Shingler

Transforming a company of fifty thousand people is not easy. Learn how Jim and his team help empower people at Cardinal Health through embedded coaching, pairing, conducting regular retrospectives (sans managers), and defining product owners. It’s just healthier, for everyone in the business.
