On the InfoQ Podcast this week, Wes Reisz talks with the Queen of Patterns, Linda Rising. Linda discusses her thoughts on the importance of patterns, she answers questions about what really is a pattern, and how she became involved in working with them. Throughout the podcast she discusses a variety of organizational and personal patterns and finally wraps with patterns to apply when driving change and innovation.
Why listen to this podcast:
- You have to realise that there’s nothing you can do about other people. The only person you can affect is yourself.
- A pattern is not a band-aid that you use once. You use it in a context where you use it in conjunctions with other patterns.
- Take baby steps when driving change in an organisation, and seek out a pocket of receptive people to drive it.
- Slack is an important part to have in life, so that if something comes along you can absorb it without having to stop doing something else.
- Listen, Listen, Listen.
