Design for Organizational Complexity study

What whitepapers or Youtube videos do you guys recommend in order to improve on my Design for Organizational Complexity score of 0% in the practice exam?

For example: The use case of limiting users when a budget is reached, I believe a SCP blacklist will do the job for preventing new resources, right? You don’t want to mess with existing roles.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Hendry,

Like the other domains, Designing for Organizational Complexity is a very wide space and your example is pretty specific.

In practice, I would not create some automated rule that prevents new resources once a budget is reached as this may kick in during a time when you really need it like in a scale-out scenario, a backup run or a DR situation.  SCP’s are designed to setup guard-rails around sub-accounts rather than dynamically adding and removing capabilities.  AWS Budgets are more designed to help enforce awareness of budgets.  You can read about a practical example of this here but I probably would not implement it for reasons above:

Here are a few broad resources that might help get you started.  This isn’t exhaustive but it should set you on the right path.


Just got the same 0 score today! LOL

I started a global renovation in my apartment and decided to completely change the interior. The site helps me with this and I can say with confidence that it has the best quality and reasonable prices.
