Workshop: culture follows structure

I was presenting this workshop in Vilnius on May 2017.


The main line of thoughts:

  • we use the word "culture" to explain when things don't work (and work)
  • when the companies are young (start-ups) culture (beliefs and habits of the founders) shape the emergent structure
  • once the companies get stable, the structure starts to sustain itself
  • hence in a stable company, structures are shaping the cultures
  • Larman's law calls it "culture follows structure"

Then we review the some sample structure decisions that affect culture in different ways:

  • component teams
  • platforms teams
  • lack of team skills
  • product management 'divide and concur'
