Balancing autonomy and alignment in the environment of loosely controlled chaos—a fireside chat between two grumpy engineering leads from Spotify

This is a conversation between two senior leaders from Spotify. Johan (Staff Engineer) and Piotr (Senior Engineer Manager) talk about things like:
— How does Spotify balance autonomy and alignment in the context of delivery and software architecture.
