Overcoming the Obstacles to Cultural Change

You want autonomous teams who are empowered to do great work. But then, leadership is constantly micromanaging everything you do.

You want the freedom to collaborate, do team-building exercises, and have fun. But you get the feeling leadership is judging your every move.

You want a different culture, but leadership keeps getting in the way.

Maybe you’re not seeing the big picture. Perhaps you’re only thinking about the change you want to see.
What if the change you want starts somewhere other than where you think it does?

When it comes to culture, what you value is primarily determined by your personality. But what happens when your values don’t align with the business?

In this talk, we’ll use personality profiling to understand what’s getting in the way of the culture conversation and what different people value in the workplace. Utilizing that understanding, we’ll explore how your operating model predicts the kind of culture you can achieve. And how the systems, teaming strategies, governance models, metrics, and measurements allow an agile and innovative culture to exist.

Finally, we’ll discuss how to systematically introduce the organizational changes that make it possible for each of us to think, behave, and deliver in a truly Agile manner.
