Shrinking to Grow: What Small Can Do for Your Organization

The advantages of small

We had some big names join us at Kong Summit, and one of them was Chad Fowler, who leads startup developer advocacy at Microsoft. He gave a wonderful talk on why keeping things small is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your team.

During his talk, Chad outlined how almost everything we’ve seen in the evolution of software and systems points to one, fundamental truth: small things are more manageable than big things. Small iterations are better iterations. Small methods are better methods. Small teams are better teams. He discussed examples from sociology, psychology, and biology that explored how we can think small to build systems and organizations that can outlive us.
