An acme for software development organisations
About the Book
Many organisations seek change for the better, but many are destined to fail. This is down to many factors, but not least because organisations lack a clear model of what a quintessential software delivery-led organisation looks like and works like.
This book is a map or blueprint of the quintessentially effective software delivery-led organisation, in book form. It's a book through which organisations can surface, reflect upon, and compare their collective culture, assumptions, beliefs and practices.
Equipped with such a map, it’s easier to spot where improvements might be made, and more fundamentally, the nature of such improvements, improvements which translate to improved health and success for the whole organisation.
Collective Beliefs' The Thing
The deeper underpinning of effectiveness is not what we do or how we do it; it's what we collectively believe. To build a truly effective organisation, you need first to understand what highly effective organisations believe... Quintessence provides the first crystal clear description of the things the best organisations believe. Understanding this is your next best step towards a better future.
