We've watched this video about the Spotify Engineering culture last year and it blew our minds. We fell completely in love with Spotify and its culture. It explains Spotify Product Development, their release methodology, and the frameworks they use. Spotify is a 100%-Agile company that started with the Scrum framework, but as their teams were growing, they noticed some things on the Scrum framework that weren’t working well for them. So, they decided to break some Scrum roles, artefacts, and events.
Each video is about 13 minutes long, so we recommend grabbing a cup of tea or coffee before starting. We definitely recommend you take the time to watch the video's.
Spotify Engineering Culture (Part 1.)
Spotify Engineering Culture (Part 2.)
With its Tribes, Squads, Chapters, and Guilds, streaming music service Spotify instituted a workflow now the envy of many companies. The ‘Spotify Model’ as it’s now known, dramatically increases innovation and productivity while balancing autonomy, quality, communication, and accountability. All this enables the company to rapidly release new products which drive market demand.
It’s no wonder the ‘Spotify Model’ is something organizations from numerous industries want to emulate.
