Last week I skipped the meetup of the Softwerkskammer Lübeck and went to ThoughtWorks in Hamburg to see Sriram Narayan with “Rework your IT to Scale Agile”
Although the most if the stuff wasn´t really new for me since I already read the book, I found it really inspiring to see/hear the author directly.
My key take aways are:
- Organize for responsiveness and not for cost efficiency
- In big organizations barriers cannot be overcome by team members or even managers
- Projects tends to deliver feature after feature without feedback if they are valid
- Prefer soft over hard predictability
- No projects!
