Processes and people
The models are there and the evidence that this sort of process management works.... how can it get assimilated into divisions, teams and individuals in organizations that have never worked like this? And who is going to do the training?

They learnt a few tricks from the telcos -- leave the numbers off the chart. Telco-y to the core.

One of the benefits Facebook has had is that it was able to set organizational philosophy. For larger companies, this isn't as easy to do. It becomes more of a change management issue, whereas with Facebook it is simply standard operating procedure. Can it be done? Yes, but it takes operational execution, that's for sure.

Re: Processes and people
I wonder if the onece a week procedures might also have to do with being a company strongly managed on top by one guy who happens to have a tech background to begin with. A different management style of other companies might not be too comfortable with this style. But in the end operations should come first, without that the features aren't going to work out well in a fast changing and growing environment.

Netflix, too, adopts the "fail fast" philosophy/architecture for much the same reason -- and the company's engineers credit "fail fast" for Netflix being largely unimpacted by the Great AWS Crash a few years ago.
