One of the key topics discussed when talking about agile concerns the inhibitors in its deployment. Practitioners feel they are doing something wrong, but often they are not to blame. The culprit is culture, either within an organization, but very often tied to multinational teams whose members think and act differently. This is quite normal because we carry with us the values and norms from where we come. Can these obstacles be overcome? YES! The outcome of crafting multinational crossfunctional teams creates a basis of trust and understanding that allows for organizations to fully utilize the power of diversity, all within an agile way of working.
