Adopting Agile Across Borders

A guide to navigating cultural complexity in Agile teams and organizations

Adopting Agile Across Borders by Glaudia Califano and David Spinks, published by Apress is available from the Apress website as well as at all good retailers. 

The book is based on the research as of our Agile Around The World study and features contributions from agilists all over the world sharing their experiences, stories and tips!

Synopsis

People are conditioned culturally from an early age, with each of us developing a set of values and behaviors that differ from those in other parts of the world. When adopting Agile, do cultural behaviors and values prevail, or is there a universal “Agile culture”? How have people from different cultures adopted Agile to suit them? Are some cultures naturally more suited to adopting Agile than others? Adopting Agile Across Borders answers all of that and more.

Teams in all industries are more globally distributed and diverse than ever. Authors Glaudia Califano and David Spinks reveal how people across the world have embraced Agile values alongside their own cultural values, and what this means for the adoption of Agile. In Adopting Agile Across Borders, a rich array of experiences are shared through real-life stories told by members of the global Agile community.

Whether you are an Agile practitioner, a product manager, HR personnel, or simply someone interested in leading people more effectively, this book provides essential teamwork insights across the board. Califano and Spinks showcase case studies from around the world to address the opportunities provided by ever greater mobility and advances in technology. Adopting Agile Across Borders is here to ready you for a diverse, more connected future.

All Royalties Are Going To Good Causes 
The book could never have done without the help from Agile Practitioners around the world who contributed to the book with their own personal stories. Glaudia and David felt that it is only right that they do not individually profit from the book. As a community, a commitment was made that all royalties would be donated to good causes.
 

Girls Who Code, whose mission is ‘to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does’, and The Nature Conservancy, who aim to ‘find paths to solve climate change and biodiversity loss’ are the two organisations that donations have been made to.
