Wayne Lester Yan


Job Title: Chief Technology Officer

Company: Dariel Software


Wayne Yan has been programming since 1982 and still does so on occasion. However, he is now more interested in large-scale technical architecture, as well as the practical supporting processes and governance that enable enterprises to mature into better organizations. In terms of methodologies, Wayne prefers "lean" to the popularist viewpoints advanced by "scrum," viewing "scrum" as merely a subset of "lean agile." He is not a fan of Enterprise Architecture, which sits in ivory towers, abstract, distant, and disconnected from real complexity, imposing meaningless compliance on people below. He believes that Enterprise Architecture must develop a more practical and involved relationship with the executors.
