Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations

July 01, 2020

Lately I've been reading a book called Accelerate - Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations.

Some memorable quotes from the book are:

The most innovative companies and highest-performing organizations are always striving to be better and never consider themselves “mature” or “done” with their improvement or transformation journey—and we see this in our research.

barriers that hide the work of deployment from developers are rarely good, because they isolate developers from the downstream consequences of their work

Technology managers, like so many other well-meaning managers, often try to fix the person while ignoring the work environment

Women are leaving tech at a 45% higher rate than men

A good leader affects a team’s ability to deliver code, architect good systems, and apply Lean principles to how the team manages its work and develops products

The four measures of software delivery performance (deploy frequency, lead time, mean time to restore, change fail percentage)
