Scaling an Organization from First Principles

There is a set of organizational practices that seem to work. For example: "two pizza" teams, use of APIs between systems, and, the newly emerging, Service Level Objectives (SLOs). Why is that? Why do these "work"? It turns out that these are design solutions that solve the problem of scaling an organization. These solutions emerge as a consequence of organizational design from first principles, a design that considers scale, contention, coherence, and complexity. Join us on a tour of organizational scalability through the lens of the Universal Scalability Law. See how to tame the inevitable complexity through organizational structure and discover the "why" of it all via Wardley Maps.
