Henrik Kniberg's Spotify Engineering Culture post outlines how Spotify sees alignment and autonomy influencing the efficiency and empowerment of teams. Check it out here: https://labs.spotify.com/2014/03/27/spotify-engineering-culture-part-1/

While Spotify continuously adapts and changes its model to meet new challenges, the graph still speaks to the relationship and dependency of these two organizational traits. What has your experience been in companies? How well are companies in communicating their mission to generate alignment? Have you seen work places trying to embrace autonomy only to suffer a little too much chaos? What is more important, alignment or autonomy?

Join in the discussion and offer your experience, musings, or ideas.

Everyone is invited. You are always welcome within our community of practice. Please join us at Ringlers Pub for great food, great conversation, and good beer.

Note: Cancellations will be posted on MeetUp and Calagater at least 3 hours before event time. We will not have the event in ice, or snowy conditions.
