Culture is a topic that has been talked about and fought over for eons in our governments, our classrooms and our books. It's in our language, what we eat, how we dress and how we work, a part of our lives that is the either the fall or the driving force that generates fortunes across the globe.
As we move into the digital age, the realisation of change is paramount across our industry and sends shockwaves throughout our agencies. This creates the catalyst for the business to make a transition from waterfall to agile not only for its day to day methods but also for its principles - changing the way we interact with each other.
In an effort for all people to feel invested in this shift, we first asked ourselves, what kind environment would we like to work in? What would this new world look like? What products do we see ourselves producing? How fulfilled and satisfied are we and how happy are we?
Ultimately, what do we want to buy into when we join and work inside an organisation?
This is one of the key questions we will be exploring in our interactive workshop. We'll look to create a world with the participants first-hand, demonstrating that different environments can be created by all of us using agile principles.
