Whereas the DevOps Handbook tells you *how* to implement efficient software delivery teams and organisations, this book concentrates on empirical evidence as to *why* you should, in business terms. As such it's very much an overview of the subject and is probably best suited to a senior management / c level audience concerned with strategy and business outcomes. Having said that, it still has interesting insights for those involved at the coal face, but not to the extent of the handbook by some of the same authors. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations This book uses child size fonts. The book feels weighty but it's highly padded. I feel it's padded for a simple reason. It's not that in depth and much of what is stated is simple or rather obvious; or is far better explained with detail and context in and Microsoft White papers. I was recommended this book and I have and rate the lean series but this book is poor in my view. Too little depth, too fluffy and too expensive overall. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations I’m a software and found this book was too high level, I guess I was expected something offering real practical advice and real world experience, especially having read the fantastic continuous delivery. This book is a summary of why things like automated testing and continuous integration are sound practices but this is already preaching to the converted.

It had some new pieces of advice and guidance for me, and I especially like how it brings all together the best and well established practices, but generally it didn’t offer me much, but maybe I’m not the intended audience? This would be a great book if you were a struggling CTO or someone stuck in the old ways of manual testing etc. If you run a failing IT company or department then by all means read this, but to the established folks already doing the right things then pick this up 2nd hand on the cheap. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations As some other reviewers have noted, if you're already practicing continuous delivery, lean practices, agile, etc then this book isn't so useful. But if you're looking for a concise rationale for all of the best practices, which is also an up to date snapshot of the state of the art as of 2019, this is an excellent executive summary with evidence. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations A must read book.

It's a study of thousands of companies, the development practices they use and whether they succeed or not.

It's the closest thing I've seen to evidence that doing things the right way is a key contributor to business success. Teams that deploy often have better success. Organizations that are safe to work in (where you can raise concerns without fear of being fired) have better success.

Many of the ideas professed in this book were already in my mind, but to see the level of scientific rigour that has gone into this material really surprised me. I have been using the contents of this book and the subsequent release of the State of Devops 2018 report to evangelise these practices in my place of work. Really useful book to read. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations Excellent read.

I've been following Puppet's State of DevOps reports for the last few years. This book explains what matters and why in DevOps. While so many focus on the tools, you won't see much of tools here. Instead, you'll understand, how and why organisations streamline their development and deployment practices. Culture and leadership are as important as tools. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations This book explains the approach and methods of the Devops survey to support the findings of the study. It is useful and interesting background, given scientific back up to claims of the advantages of Devops, lean and agile. But it is not the place to start if you are interested in adopting those practices. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations As other reviewers have stated this book isn't about how to do devops per se, this is about why it's important for your organisation in terms of team performance and ultimately business outcomes. For me, this has validated the direction we are going within my teams and given me academic quality evidence, that's been peer reviewed, to counter resistance that we might meet to this transformation. I would definitely recommend it on that basis. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations The way this book uncovers the key capabilities that drive improvements in software delivery performance is brilliant.

It was interesting to read the science behind the research findings and the rigorous research methods used which was predominantly done by surveys, which I'm a big fan of. Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and Devops: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations
