Don’t be a sheep

Image by Susanne Jutzeler from Pixabay

During a meeting this week, I had to think of a famous quote by Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” The two senior leaders to whom I was talking complained about their R&D organization doing everything right on paper from an Agile, data-driven perspective, but still ending up with building humongous, inflated features that were released after many months of development.

This is of course a classic example of feature creep many companies fall into. When exploring how the situation developed, the discussion made clear that a very small number of influential people in the R&D organization had managed to convince the others that the initial plan of releasing a minimal viable feature wasn’t possible as it would cause angry customers.

I don’t want to focus on feature creep but rather on the ways a vocal minority in an organization, or even society at large, can have an impact that far exceeds the size of the group. In general, I’m a big proponent of a small group of individuals taking charge to initiate change within an organization. Even if the senior leaders pride themselves on leading major changes in their organization, almost always some individuals had been pushing for and championing the change for quite some time before it was picked up by senior management.

The challenge with “the vocal minority,” as I often refer to it, is that their success often depends more on the ability to use rhetoric and debating techniques than on the actual, technical nature of the change that is being advocated. The consequence is that individuals may passionately argue for changes that are detrimental to the organization and its members. To evaluate the relevance and validity of the proposed changes, I typically apply four questions or tactics. advertorial 

The first test to which I subject a change proposal is to evaluate it against the fundamental principles I consider to be true. One of these is that faster feedback cycles are better than slower ones. This means that arguing for inflating a feature and consequently delaying its release, as well as the associated feedback goes against the argument for including more in the feature. My general rule of thumb is that work items should be kept to a size that allows one team to complete it in one sprint.

The second question I ask is whether the proponent of the change has considered a sufficiently broad scope of impact. It’s very easy when proposing a change to focus exclusively on the topic at hand and how to address it, without considering the broader scope. For instance, releasing larger features may offer more relevant functionality to a wider subset of customers, but it may also decrease the (perceived) quality of the system as it’s harder to test a large chunk of functionality than it is to test a small slice.

The third test is to explore second-order effects. In a famous story, Mao Zedong ordered all sparrows in China to be killed as they ate seeds. The second-order effect was an explosion of the locust population, causing a famine resulting in the death of millions of people. In software engineering, a well-known case is incentivizing software engineers to use code from a shared code library to increase software reuse. This has caused all kinds of interesting effects, including engineers first checking in their code into the shared code library and then “reusing it” to get their bonus. Although it often is very difficult to predict second-order effects, it’s generally possible to generate relevant hypotheses that either can be tested or for which at least circumstantial evidence can be collected.

The final mechanism I use is to explore if it’s possible to run small-scale experiments that provide additional evidence concerning the proposed change. The challenge with the first three tests/questions is that these are based on argumentation and reasoning and not necessarily founded in empirical reality. It’s critical to complement the beliefs that underlie the reasoning with tangible, empirical data to increase the confidence that the change will have the intended outcome and avoids unwanted side effects.

Concluding, in my experience, virtually all change in organizations is initiated by a “vocal minority.” This minority often relies on rhetoric and debating techniques to gain influence, rather than the quality of their proposal. This requires all of us to critically reflect over change suggestions. I’ve described four techniques that I use to evaluate these proposals. Rather than submitting to some form of herd mentality, it’s the responsibility of each and every one of us to maintain independent and critical thought, independent of peer pressure.

  78. Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Cheers!

  79. Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

  80. Good day I am so glad I found your webpage, I really found you by mistake,
    while I was searching on Yahoo for something else,
    Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all
    round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have book-marked it and also added in your RSS
    feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more,
    Please do keep up the excellent job.

  81. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish
    more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not
    talk about such subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  82. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to
    get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  84. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much
    more useful than ever before.

  85. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and
    am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  86. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  87. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved
    soon. Many thanks

  88. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring
    on other websites? I have a blog based on the same topics you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e
    mail.

  89. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve
    had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for
    another platform. I would be great if you could
    point me in the direction of a good platform.
