Get in touch
Around two years ago, I moved to a new company, AOE, which has almost tripled in size within the last few years. As we are an Agile organization, we asked ourselves whether we needed titles or not. We came to the conclusion that we don’t like titles, but that for some of us it makes sense to have business cards. And we didn’t want the cards to hold only the name, but also let the recipient know what area the person is working at. So of course I started thinking what my area would be.
Well, it became a bit complicated because I am experienced in Agile methodologies (which I coach) and my second sweet spot is development and architecture. Two completely different areas, I thought, and I didn’t intend to write both onto the business card, i.e. “Agile Methodology, Architecture and Development”. I thought that was kind of too “extravagant” and “boastful” and also that it is just too long and not catchy enough. After a few days one of my colleagues (actually it was my CEO) proposed “Why don’t you just call it ‘Agile Architecture’”?
In the beginning, I wasn’t too sure, but in the meantime I really love it because it has many meanings if you think about it:
So, sometimes an idea needs to mature until you detect the real meaning behind it.
So here is Triple-A-Stefan: Me working at Agile Architectures at AOE!
