CLASH OF CULTURES: WHAT AGILE MANAGERS CAN DO TO SURVIVE
Again and again, attempts to introduce agile methods into companies fail. With failure, managers believing in the agile mindset as the way to do business in a complex environment, usually leave their companies. The prevalent reason for this is the “clash of cultures” between Agile and the predominant culture within an organization. The questions this raises are “what is an ‘Agile Culture’?” and “how can it be managed?” This talk addresses these questions and explains what management can do to increase the likelihood of success within a cultural change towards Agile. Both a failure and a success story show what it can look like in practice.
YOU AND THE SCRUM CULTURE – AN IN DEPTH WORKSHOP
Every organization possesses the culture it has earned. Are you looking for a way to change yours? In a world that is changing at an exponentially faster rate, you might well be trying. If so, the first step is to gain a broad view of the current state of your organization’s culture and the possible alternatives. Such knowledge is especially indispensable, when your goal is to achieve a successful agile transition.
This workshop will provide you with an in-depth understanding of this topic. You will work with different methods to uncover the organizational culture of your company. Once this is clear, we will take a close look at the Scrum Culture and compare it to your own current one. Finally, you will work on transition paths that are unique to your own situation.
This workshop is most beneficial for transformation leaders and their teams, although everybody working on transitions to Agile will benefit.
