I’ve just finished reading Team Topologies. And wow. What a game-changer.
In the same way that XP and Agile were great advances for development (even though some may disagree), this is as fundamental. It shows how organisations can re-imagine team structures aligned with architectures suggested by Conway’s Law.
It shows how architects and engineering leaders best serve their organisations by supporting team change and also participating in the core delivery streams. This can bring the whole org closer together.
It has even opened my mind to the possibility of Kubernetes (or at least micro-services) being a force for good both in architecture and organisational terms.
This makes me feel hopeful and excited for the future. Powerful work Manuel Pais and Matthew Skelton.
