During my Management3.0 course last week, there was a lot of talk about ideal team sizes, ideal company sizes, etc. That then evolved into a discussion on psychological events, group structures, how do we interact with people?
Nadezhda pointed us to "The Innovation of Loneliness". A internet video about how online social networks are replacing personal interaction and reshaping our self image to the point that it might become the biggest social problem humanity is yet to face.
And then I ran into this article: http://pragdave.me/blog/2014/03/04/time-to-kill-agile/
Dave Thomas argues that "Agile software development" is little more than "drop most processes, think about the impact of what you do NOW on what you're going to do NEXT". And isn't that exactly what needs to be done in the rest of the company as well? Wouldn't all work be done more efficiently if we projected the Agile Manifesto on it?
