The State of Agile survey continues to report that company philosophy and culture is killing our agile projects. Coupled with broader organisational and communications problems, cultural transition and unwillingness from team members to embrace agile, many people struggle to know what to do to help change others' minds about the benefits of agile and adopt its processes.

How can coaches and managers affect change in organisational culture? What do they need to know to create long-lived agile values and behaviours in individuals and teams that promotes and sustains an enterprise agile culture?

In this workshop, participants will work in groups and be led through a **Problem-Based Learning approach** to articulate their issues in changing culture. Matthew will then lead the group step-by-step through a number of psychological theories and applications, based on problems from case studies, and ask participants to then identify the root cause of their issues, come up with ideas to address them, and then share them with others in the workshop.

By applying a problem-based learning approach, participants will create domain knowledge in psychology, specifically designed to:

* Identify the type of organisational culture

* Understand culture through the output of individuals’ behaviour

* Understand the behaviour of individuals and teams in terms of Power Theory, Group Dynamics

* Describe change as a series of stages and identify the stage of change of individuals and teams

* Create long-lived agile behaviours over pushing adherence to process

* Address difficult behaviour in team members

* Encourage teams to become ‘high performers’
