Lots of our people have lots of opinions. Here are just a few of them
ThoughtWorks embraces the individuality of the people in the organization and hence the opinions expressed in the blogs may contradict each other and also may not represent the opinions of ThoughtWorks.

The Innovator's Cunundrum
Even as the pandemic hits sales, [automakers] need to pour vast sums into developing electrical vehicles - with absolutely no guarantee of success.
-- FT Lex, July 29, 2020
Socioeconomic systems in transition are impossible to navigate. At the same time that the old order is in collapse, the keys to the new order are very difficult to forge. Plenty of people bet and lost - in many cases quite tragically - during the 1918 Russian revolution, the great depression that began in 1929, the 2008 financial crisis, as well as in many other transitions in between. It is easy…
Inception and team happiness
Some time ago, I did facilitate a final retrospective for a team that has worked together for more than a year. Two of my passions are inceptions and retrospectives. So, during the retrospective, I was very interested on hearing more insights about that team view on inceptions. Being a retrospective facilitator is very rewarding. Besides […]
Weekends — a much needed time for Entrepreneurs
The truth is when you are an entrepreneur there is no weekend and it’s not by any compulsion but because of the passion, you have for your startup. The majority of the entrepreneurs would echo this line of thought.
If you are an entrepreneur and taking the weekend off then maybe you are just in a glorified job with no boss to report to.
All days are the same!
For entrepreneurs, work is their passion, their life, their baby. It’s for a reason you have left a few things behind to venture and create it. In fact, work is not…
Resultado-chave versus atividades para alcançar o Resultado-chave
Percebi que várias pessoas confundem “Resultado-chave” com “Atividades para alcançar Resultado-chave”. Muitas vezes, eu facilito uma sessão para uma equipe definir seus OKRs. E eu tenho visto essa confusão, em muitas equipes. Veja o exemplo de OKR a seguir (do artigo do Felipe Castro sobre OKR): Objetivo: criar uma experiência incrível para o cliente Resultado-chave: […]

Parking lot, a facilitator tool to keep a focused conversation
The Parking lot helps to track any items, ideas and issues that are raised during an activity, but may not be useful to discuss at that specific time in the workshop. It is an essential toolkit for the facilitator as it provides a polite way to say “yes, I heard you. But it is not […]

Podcast on shift of code into the browser published
In one of the discussions of the Doppler group, where we create the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar, I mentioned that I saw a shift of code from the server to the browser. Mike, who is one of the hosts of our podcast series, got interested, and so did Rebecca, our CTO at ThoughtWorks. Together we recorded a conversation that retraces the twenty year history from “rich” desktop applications to systems where more than 50% of the code runs in the web browser, ending with a brief look into the future.
The end of the Hackintosh era (for me)
Since 2009 a Hackintosh has been my main computer at home. In case you are unfamilar with the concept, a Hackintosh is a generic PC built from components that runs Apple's macOS. In hindsight this was a good choice at the time but a number of factors have now driven me to buy MacBook Pro for personal use.
With the announcements by Apple at WWDC this year a beautiful symmetry seems ahead. In 2006 I bought one of the first Intel MacBook Pros and now I bought what will likely be one of the last Intel MacBook Pros. And in…

Does your functional automation really add value?
Most teams are:
- implementing automation
- talking about its benefits
- up-skilling themselves
- talking about tooling
However, many a times I feel we are blinded because of the theoretical value test automation provides, or because everyone says it adds value, or because of the shiny tools / tech-stacks we get to use , or ...

How do you think about activities and prepare the agenda for a workshop?
Many times, I am invited to facilitate retrospectives, inceptions and workshops. For retrospectives, I use the FunRetrospectives.com agenda builder. For inceptions, I will either plan a Lean Inception, or decide the activities according to the requester intention for the inceptions (I will select activities from the inception activities menu and prepare the agenda). But for […]
