    This is the second post where I look back at 2016 with some reflections on the most useful and interesting topics that I explored in the year that just passed. I really enjoyed writing the series on modernization, sig-nif-i-cance and the cloud economy. Modernization was a topic I knew about but never fully explored. It was timely to write about the cloud economy as it was a hot topic in 2016. The sig-nif-i-cance series was fun for me to indulge in and re-explore some of my favorite topics.

    Ways IT Teams Work: Federation Unified by Process

    This is part two of a multi-part series on how teams are organized and how they work together within a set of conventions and constraints. This post describes an organization that creates products and offerings with members that work simultaneously on multiple projects.
