HoA #55: Designing Agile Ecosystems with Org Topologies™
Abstract: Designing Agile Ecosystems with Org Topologies™
Over the past decade, heavyweight methods like SAFe® have dominated the agile landscape, offering tools for “scaling agile.” Yet questions arise about their prescriptive nature and genuine agility.
Framework-agnostic approaches like Team Topologies™ and unFix™ have recently emerged, offering more flexible, “buffet-style” organizational design choices. However, they demand a deep understanding of organizational design, systems thinking, and queuing theory to avoid pitfalls.
Org Topologies™ bridges the gap between rigid frameworks and DIY methods by emphasizing ecosystems—interconnected organizational parts that exhibit specific behaviors. Co-creators Alexey Krivitsky and Roland Flemm will introduce a method to navigate and improve organizational ecosystems for agility.
