A perfect overview of organizational challenges for companies going from 10 to a couple of hundred of employees. Since it's a very broad topic, it doesn't go in-depth.

One of the most insightful and complete engineering management book I have read. The book has five pillars: hiring, people management, organization, culture, and communication; each explained beautifully with concrete examples and with practical guidance to take the theory to practice.

Essential literature that will never get old.

A great overview of full process of creating teams, from hiring funnels to when and how to scale everything, including communication, culture, delivery, reporting.

As opposed to many books around engineering, which only push product teams, Scaling Teams provides pro's and con's around different strategies, which makes it much more helpful in the diverse, complex organization ...more
