Henrik Kniberg and Anders Ivarsson have written an interesting paper on Scaling Agile @ Spotify with Tribes, Squads, Chapters & Guilds. The organizational setup of the teams is very interesting. Since I’m currently reading We the People by John Buck and Sharon Villines on dynamic self-governance, I’m wondering if the structure of Chapters & Guilds could have been replaced by a doubly linked circle organization instead? It’s just a thought for the time being. I’m not sure what the pros and cons would have been? Instinctively, I don’t like matrix organizations. It adds an extra dimension of complication which I think should be avoided. Double linking seems to be a more straightforward approach. But again, I don’t really know (yet).
