Been talking to CTOs and Product Managers about their processes. Themes: low morale among engineers and the feeling they aren’t making meaningful changes to the product. Two-week sprints, Scrum and JIRA contribute to a high-overhead, low-productivity culture of micromanagement.

The book Accelerate contains many more valuable insights on leadership as well and I intend to revisit my blog post in the next couple of weeks (if I have time) to update it.

Successful IT organizations also: - deploy small batches of changes - deploy to production during *normal business hours* - address burnout at an organizational level (instead of trying to fix the person) - allow teams to choose their own tools

Successful IT organizations also: - use trunk-based development & continuous integration - have a lightweight approval process (no Changes Approval Board!) - have reliable test automation, written by the developers (not a separate QA team) - have little or no deployment pain

Accelerate shows that successful IT organizations: - deploy to production on demand, *multiple times per day* - take a commit to production within 1 hour - have only 0-15% of changes to production fail - fix production issues within 1 hour - have completely automated deployments
