Cloud will not fix your broken culture. Microservices won’t prevent your two-pizza teams from needing to have conversations with one another over that pizza. As Conway’s Law suggests, though, the quality of your software is a direct reflection on the quality of the culture creating it (just as the structure of your software reflects your organizational structure), making thoughtful decisions about tools and architecture can help. We succeed when we share responsibility and have agency, when we move past learned helplessness to active listening. "Anyone who says differently is selling something”.
Incremental improvement is better than sequential waterfall delivery. Cloud is not a “silver bullet”, there is no flowchart, no checklist, no shopping list of ticky boxes that will make everything better. Tools are essential, but how we implement the tools and grow the culture and practices in our organizations needs even more attention. Whether you’re just starting to implement technical and organizational change, or facing the prospect that you already have legacy microservices, it’s worth considering the why and the how of our behaviors, not just the what.
