I’ve spent most of my career studying how organizations improve their software and trying to share it with outers. Nowadays, I also try to hustle up interest in Pivotal, of course.
Here’s what I’ve found so far, in different forms:
- A book that collects together the stories and successful tactics large organizations are using to get better at software. See also formal excerpts and the previous version (also in Chinese).
- A presentation - putting everything into one talk is impossible, but I speak on this topic frequently anyhow. There’s several versions, by length:
- Rethinking Enterprise Architecture - the role of enterprise architects is ill-defined in all of this, but vital for success. Here’s my rough notes on the part EAs play and how they need to change: recording and slides.
- What even is “culture”? - a large part of transformation is changing your culture, we’re told. What exactly is that and, more importantly, what are some tactics for doing it? Recording and slides. (Waiting for recording to be published).
