I don’t often use this forum to link out to other websites and authors, but I read a post last night by Martin Fowler and James Lewis that really gets to the heart of this issue around encapsulation, decoupling, and value streams I’ve been talking about lately.

The article does a great job of describing the problem and the end-state solution… it doesn’t say much about how to get there. Even so, I was impressed by the article and I wanted to share it with you guys in case you haven’t seen it.

I think this kind of architecture might be a prerequisite for true agile at scale, take a look:

UPDATE: Here is another interesting post I just discovered on Twitter by Richard Clayton highlighting some of the mistakes they made implementing this approach. Doesn’t invalidate the concept, just some good things to be aware of.
