Book Overview

Accelerate your organization to win in the marketplace. How can we apply technology to drive business value? For years, we've been told that the performance of software delivery teams doesn't matter―that it can't provide a competitive advantage to our companies. Through four years of groundbreaking research, Dr. Nicole Forsgren, Jez Humble, and Gene Kim set out to find a way to measure software delivery performance―and what drives it―using rigorous statistical methods. This book presents both the findings and the science behind that research, making the information accessible for readers to apply in their own organizations. Readers will discover how to measure the performance of their teams, and what capabilities they should invest in to drive higher performance. This book is ideal for management at every level.

   Old reading:
A great book. As an IT professional, he has worked on many Unix and Linux systems. New ideas, new ways of doing things. If you have any questions, I recommend putting the "Part II" book in Appendix.

   Great book on what makes enterprises great at developing and managing enterprise software
What makes some organizations high performers and low performers is often difficult to determine, but the book does a great job of looking at what makes some organizations high performers and low performers. I highly recommend this product to anyone in the IT industry.

   Rigorous Science, Practical Insights
Only a handful of books combine science and usefulness. It's not a collection of anecdotes and opinions that you would expect from a book. It is real, valid science based on rigorous research, Raymond said. Like many introductory books, this is highly accessible and practical. This data sets us apart from the rest of the world, he said. Of all the businesstechnical books on my shelves, this is easily in the top handful of most valuable books I own. I have bought multiple copies and I frequently lend or give them to friends and neighbors.

   Provides solid data for improving the developer experience
Really great to get data on things that have always felt like it should be a good way to do development, Raymond said.

   Provides a useful summary and analysis on DevOps Trends and practice
JD Salinger and Co. did an excellent job researching and writing the book. This report provides a useful summary of DevOps trends and practice.

   For me this was a fantastic introduction to DevOps
It took me three days to get to grips with this book. This was a great introduction to the concepts because the fact that it is based on concrete measures keeps it laser focused on the whole point – becoming, being and remaining a high performing software delivery organization. It was inspiring because it never loses sight of the fact that an organization is formed of human beings and that DevOps is about culture—and that is why, and when, it works, Raymond said.

   Of course this is my favorite quote: “The visibility and transparency yielded by effective ...
If there's anyone living under a rock and still doesn't believe in DevOps, this is worth a look. Perhaps the strongest case for organizational change you will find and considering who the authors are, is that's not too surprising. Service management is a must-read for anyone on the road to excellence. The visibility and transparency yielded by effective monitoring are invaluable, said John Worthington, director marketing, eG Innovations.

   Do you wonder why improvements are not improving an overall capability?
If you are a technical learner, this book is for you. Accelerate highlights the business value of maturing a DevOps capability by covering a new way to measure software delivery, Raymond said. However, he added, "There is a science to identify the right work at the right time to create a smarter SDLC." It's just that it isn't really DevOps, but rather, work in a Generative Culture of Harmony.

   Great blend of SW Delivery Excellence wrapped around Technical Practices and Leadership Foundation
Great blend of leading practical thoughts around how you create and continuously evolve Software Delivery Excellence. The product also includes the ability to perform 24 additional functions, the four true measures that align tempo and stability. Combines Lean Software Development, Phoenix Project, DevOps and several concepts from different books around lean management and practices. This book includes research methods and a data section, but stresses that measuring this journey internally is a journey that can't be outsourced and needs to grow within continuously to be competitive and thrive.
