Small steps can lead to big changes. As Jiri says, there’s no point in going against the big wall of large steps in change, it is often disappointing and prone to failure. Identifying the pain points and then taking one step at a time can lead to amazing results.

Event Storming is a technique that comes from Domain Driven Development. Alberto has adapted that technique to his work as a coach to help organizations identify their own patterns and therefore be able to change them. In this episode we explore how this technique can be used to foster organizational change.
About Alberto Brandolini
Alberto looks at himself as sit at the intersection between the Agile/Lean community and the Domain-Driven Design community. Sometimes, he says, the solution is to write better software, sometimes the solution is to take a big modelling surface and see “the problem” in all its magnificence, sometimes the solution is to have a beer.

Henri shares a different story, where progress was more important than “the right” thing to change. Keeping the change progressing becomes more important than doing the right kind of changes at the expense of commitment and acceptance by the team and the organization.
