Agile and Culture

A solid presentation on culture and Agile. To completely do a real and feasible transformation of any kind, you must understand how culture is involved.

This screencast by Michael Sahota uses the Schneider Model depicted in the book The Reengineering Alternative.

A solid review going over:

  • Collaboration
  • Control
  • Cultivation
  • Competence

What is more interesting is what this screencast brings to mind: I NEED TO FEED MORE ON UNDERSTANDING CULTURE.
