The Critical Channel
#critical, #incidents, #war-room, #sos. Every startup creates one at some point: a channel in which, whenever the fecal matter strikes the atmospheric propulsor, an attempt at coordination takes place. It's one of those ubiquitous inevitabilities of working in the tech scene today. Our very own Critical Channel, however, aims to highlight some different inevitabilities. From organisational culture in a high-growth situation, to personal mental health and work-life balance. From manipulating Conway's Law to evolve your out-of-control microservices architecture, to managing churn and offboarding. All hard problems, all anathema to an organisation if they crop up at the wrong time. But there's never been a #critical channel for this stuff. Well, not until now.
