About the Book
At first look, EventStorming is deceptively simple: just have a long paper roll available, and a virtually unlimited stock of coloured sticky notes and start modelling problems that looked too big to be modelled. But the ability to visually master large-scale complexity opens the way to many interesting outcomes.
- Better business processes: once you see the process, impediments and correlations are vividly displayed. You can't avoid tackling them.
- Better software architectures: see the areas where stakeholders' needs are in conflict, and resolve conflicts by leveraging bounded contexts.
- Better learning: an exploration of a complex domain is now question-driven and with a visible collective sketch. Your team will never be so wise.
- Better interactions: trigger the right conversation between the right people.
In this book, you'll find guidance about how to leverage the potential of EventStorming.
Disclaimer: work still in progress
The book is still in progress, after all these years. Many things have changed since the beginning: it works, and it's been already adopted by many organizations around the world. Unfortunately, the demand for consulting in this area spiked and left me little time for writing in a comfortable seat. The pandemic then forced me to re-think what EventStorming in a new normal looked like.
There are still holes and FIXMEs, and I am now fixing them one by one. I killed the Trello board that I used to share progress. It just didn't work for that goal.
