Inspiring insight into team architecture

This book came as a safeguard just in the moment I thought I wouldn’t know what’s the best way to reorganize teams for continuous business value delivery. It makes some very lovigal points very explicit and can help you if you see the way you work need a change, and even if you don’t it will help you to recognize the moment you do.

Definantly buying the actual biok

Amazing approach on team structure and workflow. With the additions from the DDD and devops metrologies. Sadly I think actual book is better than the audio one because you need to concentrate and check addition materials.

Stream align your teams for high performance

Great book to drive and align your development team(s) and architecture(s) to your Business needs. I've read and listen the book at the same time and the experience was quite seamless. I read this after Project to Product, from the same excellent narrator, which increased the sense of complementarity between the two books. Other aspects mentioned in the the book include Promise Theory, High Trust environments and Innersource. My book review on linkedin dwelve into these and beyond.

Useful concepts - a bit abstract

The concepts about team structure influencing flow and technical architecture make a lot of sense, and I am sure a lot of benefit can be gained by implementing them in the right way. However, I found it all quite abstract, with a lack of concrete examples, and therefore hard to understand what it really means in practice and how to implement it. It would be great to have plenty of examples of the right and wrong way to implement each element.

Teams First!

Manuel and Mathew have one of freshest views on software development organizations I have seen in a while. This is not another [something] first, the is a grounded view on how team types and they way they interact has a major impact on the outcome of any software (and I'd go as far as saying any) systems. Very well written and easy to follow, if a little repetitive at times.

An excellent starting point to organize teams

A good guide to help you organizations to achieve a good team architecture. the concepts are simple to understand and the logic behind is simple to relate with the reality in most organizations.

Good but not great

struggled to get though it at a meaningful pace. will require re-listening multiple times. content is too dense to immediately soak in. multiple repetitions of phrases throughout the first half of the book it feels.
