This course is designed for current CTOs, VPs of Engineering, Chief Architects, and other technology executives who are responsible for delivering highly available and highly scalable technical platforms & products. We help companies improve their management, leadership, and technology skills.
The principles the lessons shares can be applied to large organizations and start-ups alike. Our principles are technology-agnostic – we believe you can successfully scale with almost any technology if key concepts are followed. Although nearly any technical organization would benefit from the lessons shared in the workshop, our sessions will provide the most value to companies that use technology to deliver their core product or service.
During our two-day workshop, you'll participate in sessions that integrate Martin Abbott's experience, research, and the work he has done with over 350 clients since 2007. You'll leave the workshop with principles, tools, and examples that you can continuously apply to your platform and organization.

It's been a real pleasure working with Marty and Michael from AKF Partners. They identified and helped us correct the technical and organizational bottlenecks and inefficiencies during a period of rapid growth of our company. They also validated some of our approaches to scalability and helped us improve them. I highly recommend AKF, their real world expertise and experience is unmatched. Also, their books is a ‘must read' for every technology leader.

When it comes to building, operating, and scaling a technical infrastructure and Engineering organization, we found that Marty Abbot and Mike Fisher's experience is exceptional. They assessed a number of dimensions of our Engineering organization: the product technology stack, the processes for building and operating products, and the roles in our Engineering organization as well as how we're organized. As a result, they have helped us to continue to make progress in becoming a top-tier Engineering organization.

- David Sieh, VP Engineering, ReturnPath

I've collaborated with a number of outstanding technologists, but Martin and Mike from AKF partners are in a league of their own. We are actively implementing a number of their recommendations and in one instance we anticipate a significant reduction in our maintenance window for one of our key platforms. In just two days, AKF partners provided tremendous value to my team and look forward to partnering with them in the future.
