Taylorism And Mass Production - Why The Software Factory Fails


* Why do we separate development from maintenance and operations?
* Why do system architects chose frameworks and write UML diagrams but do not write any code?
* Why do we measure how many lines of code a developer writes?

The theories of Frederick Taylor and those that followed them still today sets the norm for how organizations are managed. What we see as normal and common ways to organize work have their historical roots in early 1900's steel mills.
These practices make agile adoption difficult, hinders empirical processes and self organizing teams.

The talk provides an explanation to why IT-organizations are managed like factories, why these fail, and how to start the change into a succesful agile organization.
