If every engineer takes those four concepts and applies it to their environment and their business, they will see the benefit and have an impact on what they’re trying to do

The four concepts are: “Focusing on Impact”, “Moving Fast”, “Being Bold” and Bring Open”.
This Venturebeat article is a useful read for all those building out not just their engineering teams but also the companies themselves. Having worked with engineering teams that made use of traditionally slow release cycles and the more modern fast iterative development teams in the past, the ability to adapt and change quickly is for me its key benefit of the latter. The other behaviour that seems to fall out from this approach is an ability to feel that anything is possible. Once inconceivable tasks suddenly become achievable.
That can only be a good approach for succeeding in building out fast growth successful companies.
