Cultural change with Spiral Dynamics to transform from 'doing agile' to 'being agile': Dajo Breddels
    Wednesday August 15, 2012 9:00am - 10:30am @ Ft. Worth 3-4

    Agile software development is no longer the sole domain of little obscure IT companies with their own gurus. Even the most traditional companies are adopting agile methodologies. Finally, recognition! But alas it comes with some drawbacks. “Doing Agile” instead of “Being Agile” is one of those drawbacks I keep encountering more and more. Values don’t change overnight by just showing people the agile manifesto and sending them to a two day training. But how can you change the values of individuals and teams or even worse, whole organisations? That's what this session is about! Luckily, there is a thing called Spiral Dynamics and it’s all about: how people get certain values, why they defend them and how these values evolve over time. Spiral Dynamics is based on 30 years of research done by psychology professor Clare W. Graves. With the help of Spiral Dynamics we are going to: 1) Discover the different kinds of Agile implementations based on value systems. 2) Recognize them in our own teams and organisations. 3) Know how we can help teams and organisations move from “Doing Agile” to “Being Agile”.
