Facing Future
March-April 2012 (vol. 29 no. 2)
pp. 20-21
There comes a point of no return in the life of every successful software-intensive system, a point where you can no longer place a pile of your best developers at one end of a lever and expect them to move the world. Rather, you must come to realize that putting piles of developers at the end of even the longest lever is no longer the right tool to use. Crossing that point while still preserving the values and the tribal memory of your organization's development culture requires some serious adult supervision.
Index Terms:
software economics, innovation, legacy, software-intensive system, architecture
