Amazon ADR process#
Amazon implements ADRs without AAF in a strictier setup.
Anyone can start an ADR.
ADR can have several authors, who maintain and communicate the ADR content. They are called “owners”.
Everyone can contribute to the ADR. All changes must be approved by the owner.
ADR goes through a review with a team. During review, the ADR can be accepted, rejected, or get new work assigned.
ADR requires at least one approval to get accepted.
Once accepted or rejected, ADR is immutable. All changes require a new ADR.
Project owner seems to have a deciding voice in the process.
Amazon implements ADR in a more bureaucratic way. Instead of seeking advice, the author seeks an approval. The ADR is reviewed by the team, instead of a cross-functional group of stakeholders.
