About the Survey

How skilled are your teams with Continuous Delivery, Architecture, Product and Process, Lean Management and Monitoring, and Culture?

Our new Accelerate Survey helps you answer this question with insights gathered from over 100 carefully-crafted questions.

It's based on the groundbreaking research in Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and DevOps by Nicole Forsgren, Jez Humble, and Gene Kim.

Once all team members have answered the survey, we will prepare a final report, and schedule time with you to discuss it.

That discussion will help you:

  • Compare your practices with industry standards.
  • Pinpoint specific capabilities that need improvement.
  • Focus on high-impact areas to achieve high performance.


Our survey examines the 24 scientifically-backed capabilities that the authors of Accelerate identified in high-performing teams.

These capabilities are organized into five categories:

1. Continuous Delivery. Continuous delivery is a set of capabilities that enable us to get features into the hands of users safely, quickly, and sustainably.

2. Architecture. The structure and organization of a software system and the guidelines for its design and evolution.

3. Product & Process. Testing a product’s design and business model via frequent user research and evolving or pivoting a product or business model early and often.

4. Lean Management and Monitoring. The practice of limiting Work in Progress, Visual Management, Feedback from Production, and Lightweight Change Approvals

5. Cultural Capabilities. The ability to thrive in the face of increasingly rapid technological and economic change, through resilience and innovation.
