Limited Capacity seats available

Imagine that you have the mission to open a company in a country whose culture promotes hierarchical respect. Within the family, in school, and through university you are consistently taught from infancy to respect your elders, and never to argue with them.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Asia!!! Two years ago, I started upon this adventure to realize my dream, creating a company whose purpose is to promote: flat organizational, emergent leadership, learning motivated, Agile and Lean practices, learning from failure
When we sold our concepts here at the local Universities, the first reactions were surprise and curiosity, with management of other companies telling us it could never be done. We were told that, in Vietnam, strict control was required to make people work and accomplish anything.
This story is that of an Agile offshore setup, created by an Agile Coach. It is a story of fast growth, and near-death, only to come back stronger than before. Our employees have created a high level working culture that helps us not only to survive the hard times but uses the lessons learned to advance even further.

Lessons Learned from Your Experience:
  • * Our experience in an offshore environment
  • * The tool that proved to create an awesome innovative culture
  • * How we disrupted the Hierarchical culture
  • * Our experience in Agile/Lean team in a Hierarchical culture
