Disecting Complexity With the Mikado Method
December 21, 2021Ola Ellnestam joins me to discuss a visual refactoring and project management methodology he co-created and wrote about in his book The Mikado Method.
Ola Ellnestam, along with co-author Daniel Brolund, wrote the book The Mikado Method, which describes an incremental approach to code refactoring, as well as project management. In this interview Ola discusses the application of the technique, common pitfalls and objections to it, and provides insight into how the technique can be used to help communicate technical debt and dependencies with non-technical stakeholders.Listen, watch, or read the transcript
