The basic assumptions
Over complexity hurts agility
Larman's Laws of Organizational Behavior
1. Organizations are implicitly optimized to avoid changing
the status quo of middle- and ﬁrst-level manager and
“specialist” positions & power structures.
2. As a corollary to (1), any change initiative will be
reduced to redeﬁning or overloading the new
terminology to mean basically the same as status quo.
3. As a corollary to (1), any change initiative will be derided
as “purist”, “theoretical”, “revolutionary”, "religion", and
“needing pragmatic customization for local concerns” --
which deﬂects from addressing weaknesses and
manager/specialist status quo.
4. Culture follows structure.
