I help organisations to understand, evolve, and optimise the design of their organisation for effective software delivery. Using the well-known Team Topologies patterns I devised in 2013 and evolved through community involvement since, I bring clarity to issues of team responsibilities and collaboration.

In particular, I work with organisations to:
- Set up the organisation to ‘sense’ its environment
- Treat internal teams (almost) as external providers
- Realise the implications of Conway’s Law and how this should shape our organisation design
- Use approaches such as Promise Theory as a useful approach to organisational agility
With these focus areas I help organisations to become more responsive to their environment and context. Through training and workshops such as Organisation Design for Effective Software Systems, I have helped people from over 20 countries worldwide to take a fresh approach to team interactions and responsibilities within their organisations.
