Juan advises teams to adopt metrics that measure engineering delivery: the phase that begins when code is committed and ends when code is running in production. Four effective metrics are delivery lead time, deployment frequency, mean time to restore, and change failure rate.
- From good to great: A capability framework for building exceptional product engineering teams
After individual engineer capability frameworks gained popularity for the purpose of leveling and career development, Juan Pablo realized that a capability framework could also be written at the team level. He defines what "capable" and "not capable" look like for 17 capabilities: • Navigating ambiguity • Setting goals • Asking for help • Broadcasting state • Negotiating dependencies • Escalating appropriately • Managing team capacity • Onboarding team members • Understanding its users • Understanding its levers • Telling the team’s story • Defining operating agreements • Adopting an operational cadence • Anticipating problems • Responding to incidents • Improving its processes • Tackling increasing complexity
