Lots of our people have lots of opinions. Here are just a few of them

On Pair Programming
At ThoughtWorks, we regularly use Pair Programming. We find it's a rarely used practice, in part due to lack of knowledge in how to do it well and because its benefits are not immediately obvious. Birgitta Böckeler and Nina Siessegger put together an excellent conference talk where they pulled together the techniques we've learned, the benefits we've found, and the challenges we've faced. I'm very pleased that I was able to get them to turn their efforts into this detailed article on the technique.

While this is an effective organizational approach, it does have its downsides. One of these is handling programs that require coordinating across multiple product teams. Luiza Nunes and James Lewis share their experiences dealing with this situation, outlining the kinds of problems they see and the practices they've found to make it work.
MVP and the One Metric That Matters
In the elaboration of MVP for experimentation, it is important to identify a key metric that will tell us if the assumptions in our hypotheses are valid. Alistair Croll and Benjamin Yoskovitz, the authors of Lean Analytics (O’Reilly), introduced the concept of the One Metric that Matters — OMTM, for short. The OMTM is a […]

But Is It Really a Tech Firm?
There are lots of executives who would have you believe that the business they run is really a tech business. With tech firm valuations still at sky-high levels, it's easy to understand why. Tech commands a premium valuation because (a) the potential for non-linear growth relative to investment; (b) low barriers to entry into adjacent markets amplifies that growth; (c) scale of offerings changes the commercial model from transactional to flat-fee subscription, making a tech firm an unregulated utility; (d) payments take place behind-the-scenes of the tech consumption, creating sustainable recurring revenue; and (e) tech industries tend to be winner-take-all.
