Optimizing for a Fast Flow of Change

Do you encounter blockers to flow?

 Do you encounter obstacles in your system that block your flow of changes? Repeated hand-over between teams, lack of clear ownership, tightly coupled software architecture, high team cognitive load, wait times (and more) slow down your software delivery & organizational performance?

I offer a variety of services to support organizations on their journey to design, build, and evolve socio-technical systems that are optimized for a fast, sustainable flow of change. My services build a holistic approach combining Wardley Mapping, Domain-Driven Design, and Team Topologies as Architecture for Flow.

Architecture for Flow Workshops

Assessing your status quo with current key challenges and modelling your future landscape, software architecture & design, and team organization for fast flow of change. That is the goal of of this series of workshop sessions, where we will combine Wardley Mapping, Domain-Driven Design, Team Topologies, and more.

Architecture for Flow Trainings

Learning the concepts of Wardley Mapping, Domain-Driven Design, and Team Topologies and how to combine them to design adaptive, socio-technical systems optimized for a fast flow of change – this will be addressed during these training sessions.

Wardley Mapping Workshops

You would like to deep dive into Wardley Mapping and explore your own business landscape, but don’t know how to start? Let’s do it together!

Domain-Driven Design Workshops

You would like to gain a shared understanding of your problem domain, identifying potential modularity boundaries, or modelling your domain in software? That is where I can help you, e.g. with conducting Event Storming or domain modelling sessions with your teams.

Team Topologies Valued Practitioner

As a Team Topologies Valued Practitioner (TTVP) I can deliver guided Team Topologies (TT) workshops for you curated by the TT core team.

Tech Consulting

If you need bespoke support, I also offer dedicated tech consulting sessions. Let’s figure out how I can help you!

Hi, I am Susanne

About Me

I am an independent tech consultant from Hamburg, Germany. I am passionate about tackling complex systems and particularly connecting the dots between Wardley Mapping, Domain-Driven Design, and Team Topologies. This holistic approach helps me (and hopefully you as well) to design, build and evolve adaptive, socio-technical systems that are optimized for a fast flow of change.

Previously, I was working as a startup CTO, and my journey in the realms of computer sciences, software engineering and software architecture dates back to 2002. In addition to tech & organization strategy focused engagements, I am keen to be involved hands-on as well, e.g. by pair- or ensemble-programming proof-of-concepts with your teams.

I have poured my insights into my upcoming book „Adaptive Systems with Domain-Driven Design, Wardley Mapping, and Team Topologies: Architecture for Flow“ (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Vernon), 2024).

You can also catch me at international tech conferences, where I regularly present as a speaker.
