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?
Together with a fellow Scrum Master, I have been travelling around the world in 2018, visiting local companies, interacting with teams and interviewing Agile practitioners to study these questions.
Aside from sharing our findings and case studies from our all parts of the world , I talk about the many layers of culture e.g.: national, regional, gender, profession. Developing cultural awareness is key to establishing strong, innovative teams. I focus on how you can leverage the power of diversity in your company and teams, using techniques such as Bridge, Map, Integrate (BMI), cultural communication patterns and cultural models.
