Culture & Mindset are the special sauce

“We really strongly believe that the mindset and culture are that special sauce that the frameworks miss. Because we talk about the whole being greater than the sum of its parts and there is a lot of value to the frameworks that are out there to execute agile on teams today. However, just adding additional teams and teams-of-teams, running a certain framework is not enough to truly transform… The change has to come from within people.”

Shannon Ewan

“Absolutely… A framework gives us a great starting place, but without the mindset and the understanding of process design, the understanding of what it means to relate to people and show up differently so the interactions are better and more collaborative, then we need to have a deep understanding of what it means to have that mindset, so that we can adapt the processes in the right way.”
