Agile Culture – Change

The first part of this article series dealt with the fundamental question of what culture is, how culture can be understood, and what impact culture has on the way we work in an organization. After this stocktaking, the second part deals with the question of how culture can be actively developed.

Agile Culture – Introduction

Agility has long been a topic in organizations of all sizes. In an environment of increasing complexity, agility can become a key competitive advantage. It's no wonder, then, that companies want to use agile frameworks to organize knowledge work. However, introducing techniques is not enough. Becoming truly agile as an organization requires nothing less than a cultural shift. This understanding is equally important for management and team members, as development teams are often agile islands in a non-agile organization that limits their potential.

KISS of Death by Complexity?

KISS means: Keep it simple, stupid! In other words: Don't make it unnecessarily complicated. That sounds good and desirable. But don't we tend to do the opposite in practice? If you look around, we are up to our necks in complexity. Instead of doing something about it, we are busy piling on new concepts, tools, and technologies every day, driven by hype and hopes for patent remedies. Time for a critical look.

DevOps becomes BizDevOps

The full advantage of DevOps can only be achieved if development and operations work together with the specialist departments and management on a value adding product. Or to put more radical: The topic is no longer called DevOps, but BizDevOps. The integration of business and DevOps changes the cooperation, organization, and processes of companies. All involved must set impulses for the digital transformation of the company and can generate economic benefits faster.
