Conways law


Conway's law states:
"organizations which design systems ... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations."

named after computer programmer Melvin Conway, who introduced the idea in 1967.

In colloquial terms, it's generally saying software ends up "shaped like" the organizational structure it's designed in.
