I’ve put together a package to help new CTOs at post-startup companies get a handle on their software delivery pipeline. It’s a quick way for them to see where things stand and where they should focus their efforts for improvement.

My assessment package is designed to help organizations fine-tune their software delivery, boost efficiency, and reduce errors across all three pillars of software delivery: people, process, and tools.

  • Your people are your most valuable asset. I'll work with your team to understand their desires, untapped skills, and skill gaps - where those apply to your delivery pipeline.
  • I'll identify areas for improvement in your software delivery process, including automation, security, and manual steps that have become habits.
  • I'll review your software pipeline, code, documentation, cloud infrastructure, and tooling to understand how your process is influenced by your software and systems architecture.

Based on my findings, I’ll provide recommendations that are tailored to your team’s unique needs and challenges, and work collaboratively with stakeholders to ensure that my recommendations are practical, actionable, and aligned with your broader goals and objectives. Ready to get started?

The assessment will take between 2-4 weeks, depending on the availability of your team. My goal is to conduct a thorough assessment while respecting your team’s time and availability. I’ll provide regular updates on my progress and any key findings or recommendations.

My assessment process involves three key steps:

  1. Conversations with your team: To gain a deeper understanding of your team’s roles, responsibilities, and pain points, I’ll start by having informal chats with each team member. These conversations will provide valuable insights into the software delivery process and help us identify opportunities for improvement. My approach is to explore both the challenges and opportunities in the process, recognizing the strengths of your team’s work along the way. With this comprehensive approach, we can pinpoint areas for growth and optimize the software delivery process.

  2. Onboarding walkthrough/pairing: Next, I’ll conduct a thorough onboarding walkthrough and pair with your team members to gain insights into their onboarding experience, the tools they use, and the available documentation. This will help us understand how the onboarding process fits into the software delivery pipeline and identify any areas for improvement.

  3. Code, documentation, cloud infrastructure, and tooling exploration: I’ll explore your code, documentation, cloud infrastructure, and tooling to gain a deeper understanding of how all the components work together. This will help me identify any gaps or inefficiencies that may be hindering the software delivery process and enable me to make informed recommendations for improvement.

Throughout the assessment process, I’ll keep an open communication channel with stakeholders to ensure that I have access to all the necessary information and systems. Schedule a call and lets kick this off.

My interactive workshop is a collaborative meeting where I’ll share my evaluation, specific suggestions, and proposed optimized software delivery process with your key stakeholders. During the workshop, we’ll have a two-way discussion where stakeholders can ask questions, provide feedback, and challenge my findings and recommendations.

As part of the workshop, I’ll provide a bulleted short overview of the key findings and recommendations. This roadmap will be a valuable tool for your team to understand the areas for improvement and the proposed changes to the software delivery process. It will be up to your team to implement these changes and make improvements to the software delivery process.

By the end of the workshop, your team will have a clear understanding of the areas for improvement and the steps they can take to optimize the software delivery process.
