Checklist: Is my Team ready for Continuous Delivery?

Higher quality, stability as well as faster time-to-market make Continuous Delivery a must. But are you ready for it? Jez Humble, author of the Jolt Award winning Continuous Delivery book, says if you can affirmatively answer these five questions you are ready!



Can my team…

(1)   …make large-scale changes to the design of its system without the permission of somebody outside the team or depending on other teams?


(2)   ...complete its work without needing fine-grained communication and coordination with people outside the team?


(3)   …deploy and release its product or service on demand, independantly of other services the product or service depends upon?


(4)   …do most of its testing on demand without requiring an integrated test environment?


(5)   …perform deployments during normal business hours with negligible downtime?
