No doubt, Agile practices and principles continue to gain traction for organizations considering the increasingly complex environment. However, it does appear that the disruptive impact of these values vis-à-vis the need to change mindset and adopt new behaviors can be much more challenging for affected workforce than imagined. This reality clearly often undermine and/or stalls altogether, well meaning Agile transformation agendas. Living in a culture whose somewhat ‘agile-averse’ values are predominant and deeply engrained, I believe it would be vital to bring to the fore these underlining national cultural norms, their impact on potential Agile transformations and more importantly, to highlight how best to navigate these for the common good of agile bound enterprises and their stakeholders.
As an outcome of this session, attendees will be able to:
1. Discover common national cultural issues and impediments to Agile transformations;
2. Identify national cultural norms around decision making, collaboration, leading, creating psychological safety and more;
3. Gain exposure to approaches for navigating prevailing challenges with cultural norms and behaviors
