20 Patterns to look for in engineering teams

The best engineering managers are also effective debuggers. 

They view their teams as complex, interdependent systems with inputs and outputs. When the outputs aren’t as expected, they’re relentless in their pursuit of the root cause, hunting down the roadblocks and process issues, analyzing communication in code reviews and trying to clear up any problems so their teams can get back to work. 

But debugging your team is a lot easier when you know what to look for. That’s why we’ve put together 20 patterns to watch for in engineering teams, a field guide to help you recognize achievement, spot bottlenecks and debug your development process with data. Get the guide today to learn how to: 

  • Identify early indicators of bottlenecks before a release slips

  • Manage project scope creep before it causes unnecessary delays

  • Recognize when a team or individual is off their normal pattern

  • And more!
