The Build-Measure-Learn cycle for Exploration and Exploitation

James study [1] shows the relation between the exploration of new possibilities and the exploitation of old certainties in organisational learning. His main point is that an organisation should do both consecutively: explore new possibilities while exploiting the existing ones.   From the perspective of lean start-up, an organisation should keep learning and experimenting via […]

Snippets from the book (with bonus material)

In a world of rapid change, it is quite gratifying to note the continuing relevance of Agile IT Org Design published in 2015. As a buildup to its fifth anniversary in June 2020, I'll post snippets from the book once or twice a week.

Snippets so far

  1. From the Preface: Enterprise IT has mostly underperformed. It’s been a struggle to deliver IT-as-enabler, to say nothing of IT-as-differentiator. Partly as a result, it is common to hear of strained relationships between business and IT. This doesn’t augur well for digital transformation initiatives. I submit that a prime reason for the

PRONOW: Prioritize Outcomes, Not Work

Product development teams have to deal with multiple stakeholders. They each have their own set of priorities. That's natural. Reconciling these priorities into a single-threaded product backlog can be a thankless task. In theory, "cost of delay" based prioritization techniques should let us avoid "HiPPO prioritization". In practice, these techniques help only so much. How do you validate and normalize costs assigned by different stakeholders? The whole process is vulnerable to false rigor and gaming. But what if, instead of trying so hard to avoid HiPPO prioritization, we let it happen within guard rails and compensate for it with…

Product-Service Partnerships

When customer companies buy software products, they usually need skilled staff to install them. This staff is usually provided by a service provider company, since software product vendors don't find it makes business sense to build their own services arm. Customers need to be aware of the relationship between product vendors and service providers, and should require transparency on the relationship from those they work with. A transparency that is increasingly important as these partnerships grow in prominence with the rise of cloud vendors.

Video and code for my Rust talk now available

A while ago I wrote a blog post about my first impressions of Rust. This has grown into a full talk introducing Rust to experienced developers, and the recording of that talk at YOW! Melbourne has just been released.

If you've read the post or watched the video you know that the code examples are taken from one of my hobby projects, an artificial life / genetic programming simulation. Because people have asked I've now made the code available in this Github repo. Please beware, though, there is no thorough documentation on what the simulator actually does and…

Bliki: OutcomeOverOutput

Imagine a team writing software for a shopping website. If we look at the team's output, we might consider how many new features they produced in the last quarter, or a cross-functional measure such as a reduction in page load time. An outcome measure, however, would consider measure increased sales revenue, or reduced number of support calls for the product. Focusing on outcomes, rather than output, favors building features that do more to improve the effectiveness of the software's users and customers.

As with any professional activity, those of us involved in software development want to learn what makes us…

For many, laziness pays off now

Many software developers are in favour of a kind of laziness, the laziness to think, design and test clearly. Instead they are very active in creating pages and pages of code, endlessly run the application in debug mode doing a treasure hunt for bugs and spend countless hours fixing bugs and regressing many others.

Atividade para priorização de Requisitos Cross-funcionais: Dentro-Fora do MVA

Dentro-Fora é um jogo para crianças pequenas, bem simples, que consiste em primeiro desenhar um círculo grande no chão (tipicamente com um giz no pátio das escolas), depois posicionar as crianças em volta dele, e então, dar o comando “DENTRO” ou “FORA”, para que as crianças pulem (e aprendam o que é dentro e fora).

Lost Productivity or Found Hyperefficiency?

Labor productivity creates economic prosperity. Increasingly productive labor results in lower cost products (greater output from the same number of employees == lower labor input costs), higher salaries (productive workers are valuable workers), greater purchasing power (labor productivity allows households to keep monetary inflation in check), increasing sophistication (skill maturity to take on greater challenges), and higher returns on capital. The more productive a nation's workforce, the higher the average standard of living of its population.

In recent years, economists have drawn attention to low productivity growth in western economies as a key factor restraining economic growth and perpetuating low…
