The Agile Culture Map

In one of my previous posts I reviewed The culture map by Erin Meyer. Based on this book I created a questionnaire to ask my readers the come up with their ideas where to position the agile culture on the eight scales of The Culture Map. As we know, and stated by many surveys, the top 1 reason for agile transition failures is that the organizational culture is at odds with agile values. So I was curious to see the agile culture map visualizing the differences. In this map I compare The Netherlands with the Agile culture. For other countries you will have complete different results. At this moment there are culture maps available of 67 countries.

As we can see in this comparison there are a lot of differences to take into account. In the book The Culture Map you can find approaches how to bridge those gaps. The figures from The Netherlands are Erin Meyer’s figures. The agile figures are the average figures of 29 respondents of my Agile Culture Map questionnaire. Feel free to submit your input too so we can make it even more accurate. You can find an explanation of each row in the questionnaire. See theĀ Agile Culture Map questionnaire.

I am looking forward to your reactions if you think these differences make sense or how you want to cope with them!
