Evolutionary Architecture with Neal Ford

When a useful new technology comes out, companies that are in a position to adopt that new technology can gain an edge over competitors. As our industry grows and moves faster, these kinds of changes are coming faster–some recent examples are Docker, ReactJS, and Kubernetes.

Evolutionary architecture supports incremental, guided change as a first principle along multiple dimensions. A company with an evolutionary architecture is structured to evolve in response to changes inside the company (such as a decision to change the product) or outside the company (such as the emergence of Docker). Neal Ford is an architect at ThoughtWorks and one the creators of the evolutionary architecture concept.
