Culture and Agile Perspective
“Culture eats strategy – Peter Drucker”, Agile failed in this or that organization because of the “Culture”. When it comes to Agile, a great deal of importance is given to the word “Culture”, and some conclude the success and/or failure of an Agile Transformation is due to the “Culture”. However, the word “Culture” has thousands of definitions, and there is no direct relevance or reference to culture in the Agile knowledge base. Any effort involving more than one person will be impacted by the culture of the people involved. In our session we will discuss the differences between groups and teams, the six standardized categories, and two dimensions per category of a culture. We will focus on high and low context and how to overcome disconnects within the team due to the high/low context. We will also discuss if any of these dimensions are attributed to Agile. Knowing these categories and dimensions help us to understand why people behave and respond differently, and help us to work with others in a friendly collaborative manner to accomplish the goals. After this session we can relate “Culture” in a structured way with organizations and individuals.
