Building An Agile Culture

Defining and building a culture is hard. So hard that most people don’t even know where to start. However, organizations that focus on developing authentic, value-driven, cultures maximize the full impact of Agile. Culture is the difference between doing Agile and BEING Agile.

In this intensive, two-day workshop we will teach you how to build a truly Agile culture based on a set of shared beliefs that create a common bond between leadership and team members. You’ll learn how to assess your current culture and set a baseline. You’ll learn practical tools and techniques to build an Agile culture that works to empower the team and leadership. And together you’ll study real life examples of what’s worked and what hasn’t as we’ve built our own company culture.

How would you describe your company culture?

If you asked your team members would they agree with you? Does your environment match the culture you are trying to achieve?

Benefits of Agile Culture:


  • Create a common set of values and principles that influence everyday decision making
  • Shift from employees who watch the clock to employees that deliver results
  • Break down physical and metaphorical walls to flatten your organization
  • Increase employee engagement, happiness, and retention
  • Increase productivity and improve team performance

You’ll leave with a complete understanding of why culture matters and a clear vision for how to influence your own culture. We’ll change the way you think about everything from your physical office space to the way you hire and fire team members. You’ll leave with tangible, practical steps that you can take on a day-to-day basis to positively influence your organization’s culture and to move it more towards Agility.
