How much of an impact do you believe culture has on agile adoption?

I recently read Paul Culling’s blog post, Open Space Doesn’t Work in China, about his experience participating in the Shanghai, China Scrum Gathering.

In the blog post, Paul describes how the Chinese event organizers were reluctant to have an open space event. “That may work in other places but it won’t work here.” Ultimately, they tried the open space event and could not believe the value they got out of it.

This led me to wonder, how much of an impact does culture really have on agile adoption?

I can tell you, in state government, it has been almost hell trying to promote any change to the status quo. The "government culture" is very fixed, and I tried to change it in my projects. I was only partially successful, but once the project is over, people reverted back to their own previous behavior and beliefs.

Because corporate culture shapes how people within the organization interact with one another and with those outside the organization, it has a huge impact on agile adoption. In cultures with a throw-it-over-the-fence mentality, it is difficult not only to get business stakeholders to interact with one another, but also to get them to interact with the development teams in a collaborative manner. In cultures that are already highly collaborative, the culture actually supports agile adoption.
