Beginning in late 2013, we embarked on a four-year research journey to investigate what capabilities and practices are important to accelerate the development and delivery of software and, in turn, value to companies.

Nicole, Jez, and Gene continued collaborating with the Puppet team to iterate on research design and continuously improve the industry’s understanding of what contributes to great software delivery, what enables great technical teams, and how companies can become high-performing organizations and win in the market by leveraging technology. This book covers four years of research findings, starting with that report (2014 through 2017). - PREFACE, 문단 8

What technical practices appear to be important? - PREFACE, 문단 12
