Can Agile overcome cultural barriers

Posted by:

In the end we are all different and unique human beings with our own beliefs and cultural backgrounds. So can agile overcome some of these barriers?

Agile in practise

I have had the privilege these past couple of months to experience the difference agile can make in different cultures. In the Indian culture it is custom to have a representative or a spokesperson. It was a challenge to get the whole team to participate in the stand-ups and to show up for all the agile boundary meetings.  However after some training and a few months of getting used to the whole idea the team is now participating in all activities and enjoying it.

I don’t think that the agile values and principles are easy to follow for all cultures and that there will be a lot more challenges in the future. But we are adaptable and we can learn new ways.
