January 2014 - Conway's Law and Approaches to Organisational Change - with Allan Kelly

Given that we know that iterative software development can work much better than 'big bang' or waterfall, should we apply the same process to organisational change? How about a backlog + iterations for shifting to a team structure which takes Conway's Law into account, so that the organisation has a better chance of delivering the software systems it needs?

We are fortunate to be joined by Allan Kelly, a software business consultant based in London. He has a strong interest and experience in the organisational aspects of software development, and is the author of Business Patterns for Software DevelopersChanging Software Development, and Xanpan.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
