we had to change something...

Conways Law

organizations which design systems ... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations

Melvin Edward Conway

in 2011

...we started refactoring the organization

...2013-10-24 it went life...

communication in line organizations

Line Organizations

Communication between customers and technitions is largely done via (MS-Word) documents. Created by people who are amateurish authors and consumed by non-enthusiastic readers. To simulate the difficulties, we played a telphone game 2.0. Here are the results...
proverbial knowledge travels easy own the communication chain.
"Die faktische Kraft des sprich-wörtlichen..."
"What, if the starting idea is not proverbial?"

Managers and Nerds!
stop telephone games!

the nerd value chain...

Nerds are problem solvers. If you know, how to operate nerds, you can earn a lot of money...
Usually a nerd will get some money to solve a problem. Like Stephan, who charges me 25c for MS-Exchange Tipps or for helping me with git merges... That is a value chain, but a short one...
Matroschkaing developers from customers via layers of project leads and sales people provides a much better value chain...
Of course there are still ways to optimize tihs nerd valu chain. I googled IT-Engineer wages in India and from that I calculated per hourly wages between 0,25 and 5€.
I believe, this is then a value drain rather than a value chain.

forgotten nerds

forgotten Nerds work alone at the end of a value chain...
they do get very rare training, they work alone...

don't let them forget you!!

I got Inspiration from the book by Ricardo Semler

I hired a pair programming coach

Nerds, manage the business!
Managers, coach them!

Come gather 'round people
wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
