Conway's Law, domain-driven design, microservices — the most important modern software architecture approaches use the organization as a tool for architecture. But software architects often have only limited influence on the organization. And teams should be self-organized — so how can you even influence them at all?

This presentation shows what exactly it means to use the organization as a tool for architecture and how software architects can use it concretely. Because even if you are a manager: Organizations are people — and you can go out and work with them!

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • What does leadership mean in software architecture
