RE: How I Structured Engineering Teams at LinkedIn and AdMob for Success

Now I tend to despise the word “manifesto” but the bit about having an “engineering cultural manifesto” was particularly interesting. Where I work we had an all-hands Engineering off-site about exactly this topic a couple months back that really got me thinking about how to translate your successful habits into values, and how to translate those values into a foundation for everything else – on-boarding, technology selection, what conferences you go to, etc. It works well at the macro level, with big division-wide missions statements, but it’s probably even more effective at the micro level – i.e., how scrum team charters can help them develop and maintain a laser focus.
