Why should you take this course?

  • Understand critical constraints to software-based delivery such as Conway’s Law, trust boundaries, or team cognitive load, and leverage them rather than unknowingly fighting against them.

  • Discover modern approaches to organize and evolve teams for fast flow, such as a team-first approach, aligning to true streams of change, and moving from blocking to non-blocking team dependencies.

  • Learn practical techniques (with supporting tools) that you can apply today for better team dynamics: Team API, Thinnest Viable Platform, Team Cognitive Load assessment, Independent Service Heuristics, and more.

What people are saying about this course

Donna Benjamin

Engagement Lead @ Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, Australia

"I would recommend this for anyone who wants to re-visit the book, and think more about how they might apply it to their real world environment. It's broken down into sections, with short videos (often under 5 mins) making it easy to consume in short bursts."

Mike Douse

Senior Enterprise Architect @ Roche, Switzerland

"Very clear and concise language makes for an easy to follow course. Genuinely useful material to apply in the real world."
