    • XP2011 Keynote: Rage Against the Power Law

      Oddball descriptions of how Agile projects work. Suggestions for how Agile teams can survive in a hostile environment. * Agile projects as gift economies. "Business value" as a boundary object that symbolizes relationships between people. Like the Christian cross or other religious or cultural symbols, the invocation of "business value" is a reminder to do the right thing more than a literal depiction of value in a transactional economy. Things go wrong when it's treated as more real than it is. * A contrast between "the stance of reaction" (analogized to the Argentine Tango) and "the stance of reduction." The stance of reduction deals with complexity by reducing it to some abstraction or simplicity that is more intellectually (or emotionally) tractable. The stance of reaction is one in which you prime and train yourself to react appropriately to complex situations. (This is similar to the distinction between tacit expert knowledge and explicit knowledge.) Agile is notable for relying on the stance of reaction far more than technical fields usually do. It's a strength that should be conserved. * A tango lesson. * Enterprise Agile as a form of colonialism. Dissing the idea of servant leadership. * Some futile (yet fact-based!) argumentation against personality psychology (such as Myers-Briggs type indicators) in favor of situational psychology. The argument is that the context (the environment) has far more power to shape actions than does the kind of personality traits that are measured in tests. The suggestion is that it's more important for us to engineer the environment to encourage appropriate behavior than it is to worry about things like "introverts don't like to pair". The MBTI mafia stopped recording in the middle of the discussion of situational psychology, depriving you of a description of a really interesting experiment. Also, the conclusion of the talk is missing.

        We definitely recommend watching in HD, we don't want your eyes to bleed trying to read tiny, compressed text. Sorry, that's just the reality of making videos about editing code. Did we mention that you're editing that code with other people? In real-time? In your browser? It's fun. You should seriously watch the video if you haven't already. Afterwards go to http://chaoscollective.org/projects/builtinspace.html and vote for what we should do with it! For real, we want your thoughts on this. Yes, you. The one with the bleeding eyes. I told you: HD. But you never listen do you. Well, this is your chance to redeem yourself! Click on the link and vote. If you can't see through all the bleeding, just click around a bunch. It will happen eventually.

          • The Agile Economics of Cloud Computing - Webinar

            In the second in the series of Agile Financial Models, Cake presents its thoughts on the economics of cloud computing. Technology alone is rarely the key to unlocking economic value in a business. Companies create real, sustainable value when they implement a new technology strategy with new ways of doing business, and change their business model. Cloud computing enables just this. It's transformational, changing business models, cost models and the economics of IT. It provides another example of what Cake terms a 'pay as you go' financial model for IT investment. Business dependency on IT continues to grow, but a this dependancy grows, so do the IT resources necessary to support the IT infrastructure increase. Alongside this, many organisations have complex, unwieldy and rigid IT infrastructures where costs are a significant burden on the organisation. Efforts on data centre consolidation, application rationalisation and virtualisation aren't enough to stem the tide and some harsh realities are facing many CTOs. Welcome to cloud computing - a set of disciplines, technologies and business models used to provide IT capabilities as on on-demand, scalable and flexible service. Cloud computing is a way of increasing the agility of IT, transforming it to a 'service' across the business. The business needs this increased agility from its investment in IT and faster ROI, lower cost purchasing models and flexible payment models, reduced complexity and cost of IT delivery. Cake offers their economic perspective on the cloud, looking at: Consumption, subscription and licensing models Cost considerations in the reach, scale and capability of SAS Pricing and cost effectiveness of different service level agreements How to determine the business value of different service management models A model for managing the new economics of Cloud IT Despite the acclaimed technology benefits of introducing the Cloud, the single most important benefit that the Cloud brings is a new economic model for IT. The true promise of the Cloud lies in its potential to deliver IT services more cost efficiently and with more financial flexibility by shifting precious capital away from depreciating technology assets into higher value investments in the business. The focus of this new economic reality is driving a radical shift in how IT leaders run IT - where the focus is on the business value derived by technology, not the technology itself.

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
