Skelton Thatcher Consulting
For effective, modern, cloud-connected software systems we need to organise our teams in certain ways. Taking account of Conway's Law, we look to match the team structures to the required software architecture, enabling or restricting communication and collaboration for the best outcomes.
This session will cover the basics of organisation design, exploring a selection of team topologies and how and when to use them in order to make the development and operation of your software systems as effective as possible. The session is based on experience helping companies around the world with the design of their teams.
