Two excellent informative talks on constraints, organisational structure and innovation.
- The first talk is about constraints that enable innovation. The notion of a causal loop and the follow-on to emergence is very interesting in relation to the closed loop feedback (positive) of build-measure-learn in the development of products. Another way of thinking about business processes is as temporal constraints (context-sensitive) leading to process improvement through positive feedback loop closure.
2. The second talk is about how organisational structure constraints the architecture and systems produced. It considers changes required for enabling microservices and continuous delivery, but which must be preceded by changes in organisational structure.
