Chinese philosophy has played a influential part in shaping thought and culture throughout Asia. As we support Asian organisations with their Agile journey, we have encountered many modes of thought that overlaps with similar concepts from Chinese philosophy.
Whilst not exactly the same as those long ago, these thought patterns have carried through into the modern world. Concepts such as ritual, 'wu-wei', loyalty and law manifest at the individual, team and organisational level – and we have experienced many occasions in which these support Agile adoption, but also many where they act as a barrier.
In this session we will cover the basics of the core Ancient Chinese philosophical schools, figures and key concepts, draw parallels to observations and challenges that we all see in organisations, and provide some guidance on how to lead and support the adoption of Agile principles in such environments and situations.
