Flow, microservices and scale
- Grand unified theory of organisational design
- How to create and scale high performing organisations and architectures
Recent research summarised in the book Accelerate points to a set of practices that lead to high software development organisation performance. Simultaneously, research from the Santa Fe institute on Complex Adaptive Systems over the last 20 years seems to point to a grand unified theory of organisational design. So have we cracked it? Do we now have the answer to the question: how do we create and scale high performing organisations and architectures? In this talk, James explores this research and takes a look at the surprising links between the practices we use every day, Elephants, Microservices and Amazon.
