ATD2015: Building agile cultures - Mohan Chickmagalur

  1. 1. Building Agile Cultures C N Mohan
  2. 2. With over 20+ years of experience in the industry. My domains range from Telecom to Banking to Automotive Industry. I have worked in both software and non- software organizations. Currently I am the Founder and CEO of PRAXIS STRATEGY CONSULTING. As William Shakespeare says " All the world is a stage and one man in his time plays many parts", I have played many roles in my life and the nearest to my heart is that of being to that of being an Agile Coach. Various organizations have provided me ample opportunities to grow and play in many of the above roles. I am an eternal student in life who believes that learning happens by sharing and also am a hardcore Agilist who believes in the Values and Principles of Agile. I love transforming Organizations to Agile by engaging and creating a Culture of Leaders at all Levels. I personally feel that Agile is all about transforming oneself from inside out. Apart from being an Agilist in Heart, I am also an Electronics hobbyist. I have a 11 year old son who is my Best Friend and keeps me on my toes to be motivated to learn all through my life.

Editor's Notes

  • The values and behaviors that contribute to the unique social and psychological environment of an organization.

    Organizational culture includes an organization's expectations, experiences, philosophy, and values that hold it together, and is expressed in its self-image, inner workings, interactions with the outside world, and future expectations. It is based on shared attitudes, beliefs, customs, and written and unwritten rules that have been developed over time and are considered valid. Also called corporate culture, it's shown in
    the ways the organization conducts its business, treats its employees, customers, and the wider community,
    the extent to which freedom is allowed in decision making, developing new ideas, and personal expression,
    how power and information flow through its hierarchy, and
    how committed employees are towards collective objectives.

    It affects the organization's productivity and performance, and provides guidelines on customer care and service, product quality and safety, attendance and punctuality, and concern for the environment. It also extends to production-methods, marketing and advertising practices, and to new product creation. Organizational culture is unique for every organization and one of the hardest things to change.
