Effective decision-making, self-organisation, collaboration and iterative delivery are all essential characteristics of Agile teams. As companies adopt Lean and Agile principles and practices across the globe, local country cultures will have an important influence on how those teams choose to work together and how Agile behaviours get translated. Cultural diversity can improve the creativity and productivity of an organization, so how can we unlock all of these benefits from our Agile Teams?
In this talk Keith de Mendonca will introduce a model which describes country cultures and examines them through an ‘Agile’ lens: how teams might interpret the Agile principles, practices and roles in different countries. Keith will also provide practical advice on how this analysis can be used to support teams working together effectively even if they are spread across different countries.
