Was reading about Spotify agile model recently and found it interesting. What do you guys feel about it?
Is it more developer controlled with less to none infra team support requirement?
Is it optimal for cloud model and not so for on-premise infrastructure?
That medium article is actually a pretty good take on it. The model only worked because of our Swedish roots and early culture. Many top down companies have tried to implement the model and failed miserably because they didn't have a similar culture.
Spotify today looks like many other companies of the size, only with funny words for business units and teams.
