In this episode, Sara spoke with Evelyn van Kelle and Kenny Baas-Schwegler. They work together as a socio-technical organizational designer, and a software architect, respectively. They work as consultants to find better ways to design systems, work smoothly in teams, and when needed, resolve conflict.

They discuss the definition of “The Vicious Cycle of Unsustainable Software Development.” They also cover their priorities when designing systems in DDD and RDD, and share how to recognize goals and values in teams, biases, the process of slow and fast thinking, managing priorities, and much more. 

Evelyn and Kenny teach various workshops to help teams identify the important decisions when designing software systems. They do this by helping teams find a safe space to communicate and make decisions together. They use techniques such as visual collaborative practices, Deep Democracy and Cynefin framework. 

Kenny shares some ways of facing conflicts and techniques of tackling this uncomfortable topic in every team.
