Orders and magnitude – The challenges of knowledge distribution

with Jessica Cregg


Orders of magnitude matter. Things don’t go up by order of one every time. Organising people in a group requires disseminating information and its interpretation and, most importantly, its distribution.

Remote working and asynchronous collaboration have become the norm, meaning that distributed teams have taken their silos of knowledge with them. The impact of this has compounded any organisations experiencing a skills gap with a skills distribution problem, increasing the importance of good documentation and transparent interaction processes.

The State of DevOps report launched earlier this year found that the best performing teams don’t just work to collaborate but also define the types and order of interactions. In this session, we’ll go over the fundamentals of requirements engineering, looking at how orders of magnitude scale alongside the expansion of scope and additional requirements.
