Organizational culture is like cholesterol: it's not the cause, it's a symptom. Software is an asset that can shape behaviors. We have investigated hundreds of organizations that produce software - their own or commercially. And guess what - business was the cause in every single one of them. Join me in discovering how cultural change works and how big of a role business side plays in it.


Outline/Structure of the Talk

What is Culture

Culture model

Experience: Numbers, how Business is related to culture

Where successsful transformations start - real life examples

Product vs. project

Role of the customer

How does it differ for Software Houses


Learning Outcome

Participants will be able to see that the business structure is the driving force of change, not the Development Teams. They will be able to diagnose their organizations better.

Target Audience

Change agents, Scrum Masters, mangement of agile organization

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks for submitting the proposal, interesting topic. It would be helpful if you can upload the slides which you would be using during the session, a short video (it should be ok if it's not in English). Also, please can you let us know if it's a talk or going to do in a workshop mode. Once you have uploaded, our committe members would be able to give more feedback.

    Thanks and Regards

      Oh, and this will be a lecture with a couple of exercises where I engage the public, so not a workshop definitely.
