Summary

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 to include data collected from the State of DevOps reports conducted with Puppet, 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 listeners to apply in their own organizations.
Listeners 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.

Valuable insight into State of DevOps report

Valuable commentary, rationale and insights as to how the survey was put together and key trends. ING case study was a good addition.

Really enjoyed but on reflection would work better on paper than audio. I understand the need for citation and reference for credibility but constant references adds little while listening in the car.

Cant stand the unhealthy breathing

I'm not sure why I noticed this but every sentence is followed by a loud inhale of air. I will just need to get a hard copy to read. It's so pronounced.

Rich Book on devops

I would recommend this book to anyone who are looking for a rich book on DevOps and more.

The narration starts with a bit to long breaks between sentences but improves in quality eventually.

Mostly harmless

As a DevOps book its ok. It could have been much simpler, it could have been written in a less of school assignment style and it could have been read by a professional who knows how to do it. C type persons (DISC) might like it.

Almost great

The gratuitous interjecting of political bend into the book costed it one star. Also, the lecture on diversity told us nothing new and was therefore pointless. Overall though, I liked the book and will put many of its conclusions to work.

Reads like the research paper it is.

I appreciate the rigger of this effort. It is a bit difficult to listen to at normal speed. I sped it up to 1.25x and it was a bit easier.

Overall, great research effort. I would have liked them to provide some secondary research opportunities at the end of the book so that those interested could extend the research.

A businessy version of the DevOps Handbook

Perhaps all these authors wanted to do was to rehash the ideas of The DevOps Handbook with a more managerial spin. If that was their goal, then mission accomplished. This book had all of the personnel-focus that The DevOps Handbook had without any of the enlightening tech discussions.

I would recommend this book to managers looking to get an idea of how Lean could apply to their organizations without having to dive into much technical detail. I would not recommend this book for techies looking for a blend between deploying tech and how it relates to business success/failure. For the second, I would recommend The DevOps Handbook.

People who want to give surveys

What do you think your next listen will be?

?

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Accelerate: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations?

The last 1/2 of the book

Any additional comments?

Way too much on data gathering and analysis techniques.
