Velocity Conference talk – DevOps and Intentional Emergence
I'm going to do some more writing on this topic but in the meantime, I've posted the slides from my recent Velocity Conference talk:
The main point of this talk is that the information age is having as large an impact on corporate organization as the industrial age did, and that the organizing principles of that era (e.g. bureaucracy) don't translate well into this one.
The web grew up in the information age though, and therefore, the way web companies work and organize might make a useful model for the corporate enterprise in transition. The web has been emergent from the beginning, for the corporate enterprise to become emergent faster it's useful to make emergence a goal, to pursue it with intention.
