Accelerate your organization to win in the marketplace.How can we apply technology to drive business value?

This book presents both the findings and the science behind that research, making the information accessible for readers to apply in their own organizations.Readers 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.

Interesting book for consultants. Uses some multi year studies and shows scientific evidence that Agile and DevOps are good (in certain context). Not much new to learn from there, nor the best book to start with if you have no knowledge.

It's more a rigorous demonstration that the last 15 years ideas about organization are not just buzz

This is a strong contender for tech book of 2018. If you’re even remotely interested in the scientific study of how high-performing organisations deliver software this book is a must read.
