Refactored #078: “To Centralize or to Decentralize?"

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Frank is The Riddler. Not the new Paul Dano Riddler, the Jim Carey Riddler at the end where his head looks weird.
  • Frank goes to Blackhat and DEF CON and shares all about it. Spoiler: it was a mixed bag. Chris asks about policy because he’s a dumb corporate drone now.
  • Chris and Frank wrestle apart the nuance between a “single team” vs “distributed pods” for shared company expertise (like security, architecture, etc).
    • Frank is convinced it must be pushed out ot the edges. YOLO, or something.
    • Chris has concerns about effectively managing the diffuse structure but has been considering the model.
  • The guys agree that rules and enforcement go hand-in-hand. One is entirely inappropriate without the other. So you can run and tell that. Home boy.
  • … and much more!
