Agile: An Emergent ArchitectureSaqib Javed John, PMP, PMI-ACP, ITIL
Emergent Architecture is based on the systemic learning, prototyping and innovation which cannot be adapted effectively unless the fundamental transformation of existing skills and work culture. In Emergent Architecture, decentralized decision-making is deeply interwoven to enable innovation and adaptation. Emergent Architecture supports Agile Framework to simplify the collaboration and to ensure that ‘system always runs’. It also provides the technical synchronization for an evolutionary and incremental delivery. Another aspect of Emerging Architecture is to bridging the gap between the grassroots-tech culture and different parts of the business.
Emergent design is more disciplined and pragmatic which presents consistent focus on delivering functionality and to discover new knowledge, new learnings, new ideas, new concepts, new engagements, new models and innovative strategies, above all it’s also used to strengthen and broaden the impact of leadership. An emergent design is not a grounded theory limited only to data collection and analysis but in fact a process of discovering and extending the architecture, it also welcomes unanticipated information from conceptualization to publication. Emergent design enables teams with local control to future-proof the system.
Agile Framework is well balanced alignment of intentionality and emergence to enhance solution, performance and usability. Intentional architecture ensures the conceptual integrity as fit-for-purpose, and right balance of emergent design and intentional architecture is the key to handle large-scale systems effectively.
