Takeaways From Shane Hastie Talk At The Agile People Sweden Conference 2018

Some takeaways from Shane Hastie talk at the Agile People Sweden Conference 2018.

  • Culture has different facets; vision, values, respect, practices, narrative, spaces, leadership, and trust
  • What is right in a certain cultural might be distasteful in another culture


  • Align a team’s autonomy around intents rather than orders and directions
  • “Figure it out!!” is a powerful way for getting teams to align around objectives
  • Deliberately design your organizational culture by planning its initiatives


  • Culture is an elastic band around your organization. It surrounds the people, processes, structure, strategy, and leadership dimensions. Any change that is stretched along only one dimension will be snapped back by the culture band!
