We believe the current software development industry information and reports regarding the state of Agile have grown stale. The Release Cadence Report was created to evolve our industry’s discussion beyond anecdotal stories to empirical data regarding the influence of Release Cadence.
Developer and Team Members
There is no greater satisfaction than seeing your software used as it was intended. This Maker’s Curse is predicated upon both building the correct software and delivering software to users for feedback in real situations. Release Cadence Report is intended to provide the data team members need to collaborate with stakeholders in devising the most appropriate release cadence necessary to navigate the path to the right product by delivering frequently enough for you and your customers.
As leaders, you are tasked with balancing a space for creative and productive problem solving, keeping critical systems stable, and delivering new value. Consider also that the Center for American Progress has estimated the cost of replacing an employee to be around 20% of their annual salary (pdf). Release Cadence Report exists to replace anecdotal evidence with clear, empirical data on the relationship of Release Cadence with employee satisfaction, market capability, and organizational practices. With it we expect you to create the most appropriate organization for you, your employees, and your customers.
