Microservices: The Good, the Bad and the Hype
"Microservices may bring many benefits to the enterprise but they also can bring some headaches, especially if you are not anticipating them, argued engineer Michal Franc, during his talk at the Agile Roundabout meetup held in London last month.

Franc presented microservices as a costly tool to solve problems — but those problems have to generate a lot of profit to make it valuable. "

No Testing, No Documentation, No Problem?
"These days, the ideas of “No Testing” and “No Documentation” are seeing a resurgence in the agile-focus development community.

What exactly are these trends? Quite literally, they are software development without testing or documentation. But this is an intentional decision, not in the too-common way that you run out of time and/or budget to do proper testing or to write good documentation."

How Allstate Unleashes Developer Creativity Globally
"When Allstate began embracing lean and agile ways of developing new customer experiences with cloud applications, unsurprisingly, the approach it took was unique. Rather than starting in one location and rolling out its new modus operandi location by location, it leveraged its global presence to devise new methods of keeping disparate teams in sync, collaborating, and participating in the company’s transformation together."

What’s the Role of the CIO in a Modern Agile Organization?
"Schwartz also argues that we need to change the “unit of transaction” between IT and the business: the project. We still constantly transact and govern in projects. By changing this unit, we can release from Waterfall-style control."e

Avoid the Spreadsheet Swamp with a Low-Code approach - by @dt
"Why do we let ourselves navigate in to this swamp without that mode of thinking? This is where a new category of applications, called Low-Code platforms, is springing up to provide a 21C, more safe, more secure, cloud native solution to these ad-hoc needs that every organisation is faced with. This is an emerging space, and we’ll be looking at it more over the coming months."

How Shell Oil Is Taking DevOps and Agile to the Cutting Edge
"Of course, another important way to measure success in the oil and gas industry is whether or not it complied. For agile and Scrum in the heavily regulated worlds, certainly “compliant” is another definition of “done.”

Measuring cultural changes is always a challenge, but it’s a particular hurdle for such a large multinational."

The Opportunity Cost of Debating Facts - by @kellblog
"Suddenly, by taking the basic facts out of question, the meetings changed overnight. First, they became productive. Then, after we fully transitioned to agile, they became unnecessary. In fact, I’ve since repeatedly that I don’t need the document anymore because it was a band-aid artifact of our pre-agile world. Nevertheless, the team still likes producing it for the simple clarity it provides in assessing how we do at laying out priorities and then delivering against them."

EPM: Now More Than Ever - by @kellblog
"If you cannot predict the future, you should at least be able to respond to it in agile way. If your company takes 6 months to make a budget that gets changed once a year, you will be very exposed to surprise changes."

Why Empathy is the Secret Sauce for Good Software Development - by @jkriggins
"And things move pretty fast in development. Sometimes we don’t even remember those whys six months to a year later. This is why Bryant advocates for coding in a way that empathizes with your future self and future colleagues. If all code is a form of communication between the past and the future, an important relic of our generation, we need to strive for cleaner code, with proper documentation, READMEs and Wikis."

Scaling Agile: When to Build a Scrum of Scrums
"So, are there frameworks that work? The four different agile coaches seemed to all be fans of the Large Scale Scrum framework or LeSS because they said says it has you scale by descaling and by removing managers and decreasing emphasis on specialization. It’s another framework built to bring Scrum to larger teams, but built on the idea that you can get “More with LeSS.”

451 Research’s @DBerkholz on Making DevOps Happen - podcast
"Regular readers of The New Stack will not be surprised in the least that 451 Research analyst Donnie Berkholz is on a mission to convince organizations to integrate their software development and IT operations teams. At the recent HPE Discover 2015 conference in London, Berkholz unveiled perhaps his strongest language to date, advocating not just for the two teams to coalesce but for their work processes to extend across departmental boundaries."

Why Agile is Fragile
"By taking a holistic approach to Agile and lean software development, companies can help their companies reduce time-to-market yet not introduce quality issues for the sake of speed. Striking the right balance is an endeavor worth pursuing: big mistakes on products or services can turn customers away forever."

Scrum seems to be mostly about having better alibis
"I believe, we need to kick off a broader, more honest discussion. I believe Scrum needs a major revision. I believe, we should work on an Agile Manifesto that actually works."

What is Digital Transformation? - by @dt
"What I do know is that your business model is under threat. Some smarter, nimbler competitor is just about to overtake you with a more innovative approach, or better use of data or clever use of technology and take your market. Business as usual almost certainly won’t be good enough, although it may take a while for you and your balance sheet to realise that."
