Welcome to LeadDev Bookmarked, a monthly book club for engineering leaders. We'll read a new book each month and get together for a live discussion and Q&A, hosted by Suzan Bond (Executive Coach and former COO) and featuring our guest author.
Team Topologies - Manuel Pais (September 1)
Team Topologies is a clear, easy-to-follow approach to modern software delivery with an emphasis on optimizing team interactions for flow.
Four fundamental types of team - team topologies - and three core team interaction modes combine with an awareness of Conway’s Law, team cognitive load, and responsive organization evolution to define a no-nonsense, team-friendly, humanistic approach to building and running software systems.
Suzan Bond is joined by guest author Manuel Pais to explore team patterns and structures to build effective software engineering teams that can sustainably deliver value.
Manuel Pais is an organizational IT consultant and trainer focused on team interactions, delivery practices, and accelerating flow. Recognized by TechBeacon in 2019 as one of the top 100 people to follow in DevOps, he is also co-author of the book Team Topologies: Organizing Business and Technology Teams for Fast Flow. He helps organizations rethink their approach to software delivery, operations, and support via strategic assessments, practical workshops, and coaching.
