TACKLING GRAND CHALLENGES
Organizations have historically solved new technical paradigms by building simplified models using techniques such as metaphorical reasoning or through the use of heuristic analogies. This works well when dealing with evolutionary technical pressures (e.g., IT-driven adoption of hyper-converged architectures) but starts to fall short when considering the many grand challenges inherent with today's revolutionary pressures (e.g., an organization-wide shift from Project- to Product-mode).
We believe that such grand challenges require equally grand responses which is why we advocate for using techniques around design & possibilistic thinking. These concepts promote a systematic interrogation of traditional norms upon which existing solutions are based, which we apply to large depth-of-field domains such as Observability, the API Economy, Operating Models, and various concepts in Cloud and Security.

This nascent domain truly fits the aphorism, "a rising tide raises all ships" as many areas are direct or indirect benefactors of getting observability right (e.g., regression management, Test in Prod (TiP), resilience engineering, etc.)
