I’ll be presenting “Cultural Architecture” at the Agile2011 Conference in Salt Lake City this August. Here’s an overview of the talk.
If our business culture was a product, how would we re-architect it? Culture influences everything. So how can we influence culture? What tools help us understand cultural influences, from the implicit, the elements we don’t even think about, to the visible, the artifacts that lead to stereotypes? Adopting an Agile culture, when it is under-laid with the cultures of the world is challenging. Reconciling cultural dilemmas drives collaboration and innovation. Culture is the core of it all. Knowing this, you can create a pull for cultural change in your organization.
AgileTour is fast approaching. The tour is made up of one-day events in cities around the world. There is likely an AgileTour near you. You can find out about the different events here. This year I will be speaking at AgileTour in RTP, near Raleigh, NC. My topic is the Trajectory of Change. This year’s speaker’s line-up is awesome and I am privileged to be among this group of professionals. The RTP AgileTour can be found at: www.takebackthepark.com. Check out the Tour and take part!
