Organisational patterns finally made it into a book
I heard Jim Coplien speak about organisational patterns at a BCS OOPS conference back in 1997, and it seems as if he is now publishing his ideas in the book Organizational Patterns of Agile Software Development. (BTW because of the book's long gestation period some of the earlier material is still available on the web. Take a look at the "Architect-Also-Implements" pattern if you do nothing else.) It looks as though the book will be a must-read when it comes out.
