Domain-Driven Design Executive View Training

Domain-Driven Design Executive View Training

Mapping the challenges of a complex enterprise software ecosystem

There are many reasons to move towards Domain-Driven Design, but not all of them are deeply understood or explained.

In this online session with Alberto Brandolini, we’ll dig into Domain-Driven Design from a socio-technical perspective, highlighting the links between approaches to software development, approaches to planning and recruiting up to business accounting.

Domain-Driven Design is definitely not a software architecture: it is an approach to software development that connects business goals to outstanding results, mixing technical excellence with a human-friendly perspective.


The workshop is a single 3-hour online block, with a chill-out time at the end. It’s designed to be interactive, without wasting precious time. We’ll be building a map of the challenges of a complex enterprise software ecosystem and see where Domain-Driven Design can help and how.

We’ll be running a quick game to highlight common behavioural dynamics, that quickly can turn dysfunctional in some organisation, and also experience what happens in a small online EventStorming session, and the type of discussions that can be triggered even when there’s little time available.

The closing would be about connecting the dots with your current challenges, your previous exposure and war stories with Domain-Driven Design and other approaches.

Target audience

This training is specifically designed for strategic decision-makers, that are in need of a first-hand deep summary of Domain-Driven Design without getting lost in the technical jargon.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why Domain-Driven Design matters in a software organisation.
  • Understand 360° consequences and impediments to a Domain-Driven Design adoption.
  • Understand alternatives to the pains that we’re used to in software development projects.

Online Workshop: How it works

The workshop will happen online and in live streaming: the trainer and all other participants will be in a video conference. You’ll be interacting and working together in real-time thanks to a variety of tools you’ll have at your disposal.

The workshop will keep its highly interactive and hands-on spirit despite being online.
This is why we require that all participants keep their webcam on for the whole duration of the workshop: this will enhance the quality of the communication and of the workshop as a whole.
You won’t be sitting at your desk watching slides and videos, and you’ll be engaged in real-time activities for the majority of the time… as if we were in a real classroom!


What’s a chill-out time?
It’s our idea for recreating unstructured, relaxed time for a conversation at the end. The delivery is strictly time-boxed in three hours because your time is precious. However, after a 5-minute break we’ll be back online with a warm or cold drink and nothing specific to say. Yes, we’re trying to recreate the “drink after the workshop” experience.

Is there any pre-requirement?
No, we’ll be assuming no previous exposure to Domain-Driven Design nor direct experience in software development.

Is there anything I must do before I buy a ticket for this online training?
If you have a computer/tablet, a stable connection (at least 20 Mbps in download and 10 Mbps in upload), earphones, a microphone, and a webcam, then you’re ready to join the workshop.
You’ll get detailed information on what tools we’ll be using and how to get ready a couple of weeks prior to the workshop.
