Imagine a set of simple principles that could help you to understand how parts combine to become a whole, and how each part sees the whole from its own perspective. If such principles were any good, it shouldn’t matter whether we’re talking about humans on a team, birds in a flock, computers in a datacenter, or cogs in a Swiss watch. A theory of cooperation ought to be pretty universal, so we should be able to apply it both to technology and to the workplace.

Such principles are the subject of Promise Theory, and the focus of this insightful book. The goal of Promise Theory is to reveal the behavior of a whole from the sum of its parts, taking the point of the parts rather than the whole. In other words, it is a bottom-up, constructionist view of the world. Start Thinking in Promises and find out why this discipline works for documenting system behaviors from the bottom-up.



這些原則是《Promise Theory》的主題,也是這本富有洞察力的書的重點。Promise Theory的目標是從部分的總和中揭示整體的行為,以部分的觀點而不是整體的觀點。換句話說,這是一種自下而上、建構主義的世界觀。開始「以Promise思考」,並了解為什麼這種方法對於從底層開始記錄系統行為非常有效。
