Culture is the most widely talked in societies, religion, race, region and workplaces as well. Organizations are the Second Homes as people spend their better half of their time in their offices. Hence, Culture is an integral part (good or bad) for driving the happiness of clients and the colleagues, and success for the products/projects and growing / sustaining business. Agile Implementation is highly dependent upon the Culture of the Organization.


How does a Manager transition to the Role of a Product Owner? What happens to a Product Owner who wants to retain his control on the team rather than working on the Product? Some developers think that Scrum, for instance, brings a lot of meetings and these meetings are a waste of time. The Scrum Master’s role is not a full time role in many companies. Leadership thinks Agile can solve most of their issues without even knowing the root causes of the issues.


Come to this talk and we will discuss a selection of real-life experiences to tackle these cultural issues and the actual/suggestive steps taken to improve the culture of organizations.
