beLithe’s Culture Roadshow Series
We’re on the road sharing our passion for how culture can truly change (and save) businesses. Culture is the missing link in many agile transformations and our goal is to educate our agile friends so they don’t make the same mistakes we did. Come see us if we’re in a town near you, we would love to meet you!
Title: Agile Eats Culture for Breakfast
Group: Mid-Michigan Agile Group
Topic: VersionOne’s 9th Annual State of Agile Survey found that the number one barrier to further agile adoption is lack of ability to change organizational culture. Workplace culture is often an afterthought in agile transformations but is critical to making it work and making it stick.
Presenter walks the audience through experiences and lessons learned while transforming the culture in one for-profit and one non-profit organization to an agile, highly engaged (and fun!) workplace. Audience members will learn how to approach managing the complexities of cultural transformations by employing agile methodologies (specifically the Scrum framework) and Lean Startup principles. Lessons learned can be employed immediately in any work environment.

Tana has experience leading successful cultural transformations in agile environments and implementing Scrum in non-software development business functions.
