One of Churchill’s best. And this was the man who said “we will never surrender”Meditate on democracy and ITIs IT about democracy? Hell No! More a case of authoratarianismSome shops are totalitarian dictatorships
Sounds like something an analyst would come up with.Coincidently, it was, from a firm that’s name coincidently also starts with “G”
Ie: Tech brinding about democracy. A component in addition to people, process and tech
We are part of the ad-hoc toolchainYou could therefore “buy” governance
Forced processInward facing, like government
Think here about role. This is top down governance that is about controlling, not enabling.More dictatorship than democracy.CHANGE AGENT NEXT
WORD ASSOC NEXT
Words are powerful. Let’s look at some and think about out reactionWe all understand this pair. Goes back to the power builder daysBut it’s important because it defines traditional developer roles too. These are usually different peopleThis one: Tech, also hierarchy
But now we are bringing in the sense of where you belong in hierarchy. RoleContractors are OK, but now we are transposing into the unknown. This is a tough one for many organizations because it breaks down traditional control.
OK, here’s some relief, we know how to work with these kind of people.
How do we deal with this???
Here’s why it matters. This is who you need to deal with. These are change agents too.No affiliation clients, inside server
The long tail is bullshitBut there is still important diversity.Bass players, skaters, farm animalsGOVERNANCE FAILS HERE is NEXT
NO room in directory for farm animals
You should be afraid of this.But I can help you…
Best of all, you get to take ownership of this interesting new stuff (mobile development, high energy, agile, etc). Great place to be. Now: Let me show you the way…
XML was a conceit.ITS ABOUT THE APP is NEXT
Use tools and process we naturally gravitate towardFind inspiration in what we already do naturally. Where do we flow to?
The point is relationship is being created here. This is a crucial interface point.
Point (as prev): Increase app dev velocity
No. Note:#1) These tools support both client and server equally#2) Though we designed for external, we noticed the following percentage of our customers use it internally. They have the same problems here..
Everyone here needs to choose.Ignore the middle groundAre you fearfulOr are you confident?
If I give you anything here, it’s that we’ve hit upon a certain truth.

Democracy is the worst form
except for all those other

from time to time.
Sir Winston Churchill
Yet there is an imbalance between
run time and design time governance
