Most discussion about scaling is about how to do it—but hardly ever about why it’s difficult or whether it’s really necessary in particular cases, let alone what the alternatives are. Join Michael Feathers to explore your scaling teams, organization, and architecture and learn the costs and benefits of various strategies in light of research about human cognition and systems cohesion.
