At the Crossroads of Culture and Strategy

“Culture” and “strategy” are two words often seen at odds with one another. Management consultant Peter Drucker once famously said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” a saying that many interpret to mean that businesses must consider the internal traditions and customs of a team before they could expect to adopt any further strategies.

In reality, culture and strategy are two sides of the same coin. Culture is what keeps a team functioning with one another, while strategy should be used to guide them in order to achieve their targets. Much like how Agile frameworks require people to interact with businesses and vice versa, culture should be used to integrate new strategies into a workplace, while said strategies could further influence the culture of the workplace.

Agile methods put the human side of human-business interactions first, so respecting existing culture and adopting Agile strategies that mesh well with the team are the first steps towards achieving success.
