The Swedish Local Government Debt Office began implementing its digital strategy two years ago. It had few modern practices in place. Now the team consistently delivers value increments, and everyone is an architect. Our philosophy is ‘just enough’. Just enough Agile for continuous learning. Just enough architecture to manage risk and technical debt. Just enough DevOps to remove friction. We learned to take small steps towards mature practice. Our customers already use new services and did not wait in vain for a failed multi-million eurobig bang. The secret is to take small steps, implementing only the architecture practices that the organization and the team are ready for.
Join me for a retrospective on an architect’s agile journey and learn how to entrust your team with the architecture.
