Development as a Discovery Procedure

Executive Update
Posted June 6, 2018 in Business Agility & Software Engineering Excellence

In this Executive Update, I wish to argue that, whatever one thinks of F.A. Hayek’s politics, his work has vital insights to offer those advancing Lean/Agile/DevOps ideas for software development. Here, I focus on his essay “Competition as a Discovery Procedure” and note how similar Hayek’s vision for the role of competition in the market is to the Agile understanding of the importance of the “development” part of the phrase “software development.”
