Leading change

Focusing on culture to fast-track Agility – with Jody Weir

THE ICONIC focused on culture first and then brought in Agility. With the right culture in place, their Agile practices thrived.

Culture is how we think, what habits we create and what we do when we’re interacting with each other every day. Culture exists at many levels within organisations: from a single team to a tribe/department to company-wide. A cultural movement is a change in your culture that starts small, catches on and builds momentum. In this talk, Anna and Jody will share their ‘3C’s framework’ for successfully creating culture movements that you can use within a team or across your entire organisation to help Agile ways of working flourish. They’ll share examples of this framework in action, including how they enhanced their values-based culture, promoted trust and safety through Psychological Safety, and created a Learning Culture.
