Play episode · 27 min
In this week's Podcast we're on to the penultimate Agile Principle, number 11: 'The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.' Amongst much more, we discuss: -How what should actually constitute a team is the sharing of a problem, not a manager. -The importance of employing a dynamic team approach, rather than a static one, to solving problems. -How the unique specificity of this principle is designed to get us away from the old 'phase' approach and avoid costly hand-offs. -Specific techniques to inspire a mutiny and become a self-organizing team, with some lessons from Stephen Bungay's 'The Art of Action', such as how to employ Direct Opportunism. -The Spotify model and the importance of shunning the easy route of adopting an off-the-shelf model. *** SHOWNOTES: -The 12 Agile Principles: -Alistair Cockburn's mighty fine Koan for Agile development: "Management tells the workers to mutiny. The workers refuse" -Stephen Bungay's brilliant book, 'The Art of Action': -The unique case of the General Electric plant in Durham, North Carolina: -Spotify's self-organised teams, not an off-the-shelf model to copy: -Sign up to CITCON in Vienna, there aren't many spaces left: *** We'd love to hear any thoughts, ideas or feedback you have regarding the show.
