The talk: Gardening in Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS)
Architecture and the way we deal with architecture is intricately connected to people involved in the process; even more the organisational structure. Because of this Conway’s law, the question arises which organisational structure contributes to better, simpler designs. There are also fairly unknown misconceptions about Conway’s law.
In this talk you will hear why we reorganise from so called component to cross-component, customer-facing teams, how this contributes to better architecture, and what kind of challenges we came across in such process.
The talk will also provide insight into how LeSS framework (https://less.works) deals with architecting, or better to say “gardening”.
