Agile Around The World

We are conditioned culturally from an early age, each of us developing a set of values and behaviours that differ from those in other parts of the world. When adopting Agile, do cultural behaviours and values prevail, or is there a universal ‘Agile culture’? How have different cultures adopted Agile to suit them? Are some cultures naturally more suited to adopting Agile than others? We have been travelling around the world since January 2018, visiting local companies, observing and interacting with teams and interviewing Agile practitioners to study these questions.

In this talk, we discuss cultural differences and share case studies and our observations of Agile adoption from our experiences in South America, Asia Pacific and Europe. We discuss how different cultures could learn from each other and highlight the value of having a truly global community that share experiences.
