Optimizing software team interactions for flow
Team Topologies is a clear, easy-to-follow approach to modern software delivery with an emphasis on optimizing team interactions for flow.
Four fundamental types of team - team topologies - and three core team interaction modes combine with awareness of Conway’s Law, team cognitive load, and responsive organization evolution to define a no-nonsense, team-friendly, humanistic approach to building and running software systems.
Devised by experienced IT consultants Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais, the Team Topologies approach is informed by the well-known DevOps Team Topologies patterns (also authored and curated by Matthew and Manuel). Matthew and Manuel have worked with many organizations around the world to help them shape their teams for modern software delivery, and Team Topologies is the result of that experience.
