Do we need a new category - 'Management, leadership, organisation & communication'?


(Andy Wootton) #1

In view of the interest in a meetup for tech leaders which has been discussed most of the year, should we have a ‘topic’ for such matters?
This might be for board level executives of companies or for community or software organizers to discuss the problems around making change happen that aren’t actually broken tech.

Maybe they could be the little mentioned ‘technic’/technique part of tech, like business process but without the software tools. I’ve never got the feeling people think development methodology discussions belong in Tech or Coder but I’m very interested in the mechanisms of organisational and cultural change.

I’ll just rest this article on cultural defence mechanisms against change here, until I find somewhere to put it: http://www.craiglarman.com/wiki/index.php?title=Larman’s_Laws_of_Organizational_Behavior.

My heading looks too long. “Organising change”?
