Spotify Engineering Culture (Agile Enterprise Transition with Scrum and Kanban)

Henrik Kniberg of Spotify put this video together back in 2014.  It describes the Podular Agile culture at Spotify.  It is both entertaining and informative, and I find myself going back to it every so often – as I did today.

Spotify+Engineering+Culture

You can find the video on YouTube here:  https://youtu.be/R2o-Xm3UVjs

Some highlights from the video:

  • Some concepts are more important than others:
    • Agile over Scrum
    • Principles over Practices
    • Servant over Master
    • Community over Structure
    • Enable over Serve
    • Trust over Control
    • People over everything else
  • Autonomous Squads
    • Be autonomous but don’t suboptimize
    • Alignment enables Autonomy
  • Fail-Friendly Environment
    • Fail faster than everyone else
    • Failure Recovery over Failure avoidance
  • Lean Startup Practices
    • Waste-repellent Culture
    • Impact over Velocify
    • Innovation over Predictability
    • Value Delivery over Plan Fulfilment
  • Experiment-Friendly Culture
    • Data-driven decisions
    • Chaos over Bureaucracy

Have a look and let me know what you think.  Does this sound like your Culture?  Was there anything here you took back to your team?
