Culture is what happens when the boss leaves the room.

This workplace truism is particularly useful for leaders contemplating a significant culture shift. Often described as
“the way we do things around here,”

Culture is a set of values and norms that guides human interactions. It is present in the espoused values of management, the unspoken assumptions of employees, and the commonly accepted behaviors that have helped an organization succeed in its chosen environment.

In the MIT study "Building Digital-Ready Culture in Traditional Organizations" Ultimately, four key values of digital Culture stand out:

  • impact - Change the world radically through constant innovation.
  • speed - Move fast and iterate rather than waiting to have all the answers before acting.
  • openness - Engage broadly with diverse sources of information and insight. Share advice and information openly rather than keeping knowledge to oneself.
  • autonomy - Allow people high levels of discretion to do what needs to be done rather than relying on formally structured coordination and policies.

Ldapwiki would like to compare this to the Agile Manifesto and Agile Principles
