Successful team leaders must have an extremely broad skill set to find the right product work through a complex and ever changing development process and do it all incredibly uickly In this guide Chris Vander Mey provides a simplified no BS approach to the entire software lifecycle distilled from lessons he learned as a manager at and Shipping Greatness is a guide to 'shipping software' in the broadest possible sense Chris Mey walks you through the software development process from start to finish and it’s readily apparent that he knows what he’s talking about As far as content is concerned then the book is pretty comprehensive Unfortunately when it comes to presentation Shipping Greatness comes up short This is a how to guide where the author just can't seem to decide on who his target audience is As a result he tends to dive too deeply into widely divergent topics to the extent that pretty much everybody is bound to find a lot of detailed instructions they'll never have the opportunity to followThis particular topics Chris tackles include finding and pitching product opportunities writing specs managing software development debugging code and finally shipping finished software If pressed I'd say that these stages are described from the perspective of a product manager though again perspectives shift freuently and without cue Shipping Greatness is best appreciated if you think of it as a broad overview of how products are developed at establish respected software companies Chris hails from Google and and he uses lots of examples In this sense the book is very informativeUnfortunately Mey is not out to inform he's out to instruct and he tends to get very specific with his advice This is exactly how to create a revenue forecast model in excel he tells you That is how to use the omnigraffe to create wireframes and here are a dozen screenshots to walk you through it If you're an entrepreneur examining a market opportunity knowing how to make a good revenue model is critical If you're a product manager or designer you might – might – find his step by step guide to using omnigraffe useful But for anyone else you'll be left scratching your head and skipping aheadTo conclude then Shipping Greatness has a lot of legitimate field tested knowledge to offer The content is there distracting digressions aside you'll learn a lot about how great software companies do their thing Unfortunately this alone is not enough to recommend it The book tries too hard to teach too much and the author's didactic efforts are obstructed by his inability to focus on a target audience Shipping Greatness is too preoccupied with the roles of various people where it’d be better off aiming to explain complex processes It tries too hard to teach you disparate specific lessons without bothering to ground them in a coherent narrative framework and as a result it's not always clear what the takeaways are supposed to be That is to say there's goodness to be had you'll just have to work for it
