Organization design for fast flow using Team Topologies - Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais

Based on the forthcoming book by Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais, "Team Topologies: Organizing Business and Technology Teams for Fast Flow", this workshop guides attendees through the many different aspects of modern organization design for software delivery. 

We look at the constraints imposed by Conway’s Law and how we can turn these into a strategic advantage, what happens when we take a team-first approach to organization design (and what this is a big win for every organization), how to simplify and enhance the intercommunication between teams, how to choose team types to accelerate and sustain safe, high-speed software delivery, how to evolve team structures depending on internal and external stimuli, and more.

How to design your organization using team-first techniques for sustainable software delivery:

  • Benefits: Turn the design of your organization into a strategic advantage through the Team Topologies approach of team-first interactions, homomorphic mirroring, and high-fidelity sensing & feedback loops.

  • Output: Structured, practical techniques for effective organization design based on team-first socio-technical principles, Conway’s Law, well-defined team APIs, and Cybernetic sensing & control

Talk: Beyond the Spotify model - Agile Scotland

A talk at Agile Scotland - Beyond the Spotify Model: using team topologies for organisation design

For effective, modern, cloud-connected software systems we need to organize 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 talk will cover the basics of organization design using Team Topologies, exploring a selection of key team types and how and when to use them in order to make the development and operation of your software systems as effective as possible. The talk is based on the forthcoming 2019 book Team Topologies and first-hand experience helping companies around the world with the design of their technology teams.

Key takeaways:

1. Why using the “Spotify Model” of team design is not enough

2. The four fundamental team topologies needed for modern software delivery

3. The three team interaction modes that enable fast flow and rapid learning

4. How to address Conway’s Law, cognitive load, and team evolution with Team Topologies
