Understanding Resistance to Agile with a “Tribal Leadership” Framework
Meeting Learning:
In order to implement, follow and further agile practices in and organization it is important to consider the cultures present in the team and the organization at large. This session will present why the relationship between culture and practices is important and how cultures evolve.

Session Description:
Brett Gibson will lead a discussion on why traditional company structures and cultures can prevent high-performing teams. He’ll premise the discussion with the observations in the book “Tribal Leadership”. Software delivery is a function and product of unique company cultures and practices. Furthermore company cultures take particular patterns that may challenge the four values of the Agile Manifesto.
Tribal Leadership by Dave Logan et al, affords us 10 years of research with some new perspectives on tackling the perennial issues of people and change. The concept of Stage-4 cultures aligns nicely with what the Agile community is trying to achieve in Software.
