A culture diamond in the rough 6. Januar 2013
Von Mark Kilby - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In his book, The Culture Game, Dan addresses a key problem that I still see after 10 years of agile coaching: What can a manager who has authority and influence accomplish in changing the organizational culture for the better? For many, this seems to be a monumental task and Dan has chiseled the challenge down into the small steps managers need to take that road less travelled.

If you are one of those managers considering an agile transition (or struggling with one), here are some greats about the book:
- The 16 key practices are concepts I coach clients on all the time. I truly appreciate how Dan emphasises gaming, structure, open space and focus as small changes that can have tremendous impact within the team and beyond. Keep in mind that you don't have to take on all 16 practices at once. As Dan points out much later in the book, you can start to see improvements if you take on four of the practices.
- Dan's introduction of the concept of triads is a fabulous way to work with others on the change and not feel you are at this alone

For Dan and the book, here are some gifts:
- Reduce the repetitive prose. I realize that repeating concepts is very popular in business books today, but I felt there was too much. The book could almost be a quarter to a third shorter by reducing some of the repeated concepts and would likely make it more attractive for Dan's target audience: busy managers wanting to develop a learning organization.
- The first few chapters and some of the later chapters exhibit multiple typos. I found this very distracting (even irritating). This point and the last point had me struggling to finish reading it.
- pp 229-238 (Ch 23 - Develop Your Triad) might be better in the front of the book and not the back. This was a key "aha" moment for me when Dan emphasized that you could start your triad once your teams had grown comfortable with 4 of the 16 practices. This was a big surprise and should not be placed at the end of the book if Dan wants to encourage his target audience (busy managers) to take those first small steps.

In summary, I can see myself referencing the concepts in this book many times and referring it to managers in organizations that truly want to make a difference. I also look forward to the second edition.

Seems like a good book, but kindle version seems to be broken 18. Oktober 2013
Von Michael Hamman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was enjoying this thoughtful book on my kindle touch when, upon turning a page, an error popped up with the following message "An error occurred. If you purchased this item from Amazon, delete the item and download it from the Cloud." I did this. Twice. Same outcome. There are other Kindle-ese annoyances (poor formatting of footnotes, no Table of Contents, generally poor formatting) which make the reading flow rather clunky. Otherwise, some good work here.

Culture Game(changer) 1. März 2013
Von Doug Kirkpatrick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
With "The Culture Game: Tools for the Agile Manager", Daniel Mezick has given organizations a high-performance set of not-so-secret success formulas. His writing is crisp, cogent and to the point. Best example: his riposte to people that check e-mail in meetings is "Give me a break". Best of all, the advice is fully actionable. Right away. Anyone can pick up a copy of Culture Game and, within a couple of hours, brainstorm multiple ways to apply Agile thinking and Tribal Learning Practices to their organization. This book is designed to give leaders (and those aspiring to be leaders) the kinds of powerful business execution techniques that elude most organizations. If you don't recognize the terms Agile or Tribal Leadership, they are easily googled for a quick intro.

Mezick's first sentence in Chapter 22 is: "Eliminate the distinction between work and play"--what a concept! When you really think about it, despite the massive amounts of literature dedicated to achieving work/life balance, there is really only life (unless people at work are somehow zombies!). Why not use games to make life at work as enjoyable as possible?

The author has a cohort of like-minded thought leaders and fellow experimenters (including Robert Richman, former head of Zappos Insights, and Michael Margolis, master storyteller), and he draws them out skillfully in interviews. Throughout, he builds out Agile principles in a logical sequence upon a solid foundation of history and context, and does so in an authentic and entertaining way. He gives full credit where credit is due, not only to Agile and Tribal Leadership, but to every resource that defines and/or reinforces his principles (including complexity theory, brain science, psychology, Toyota, systems theory, and many others). As a reader, I appreciated the references and learned where to go for more in-depth information.

Daniel Mezick has comprehensively defined the game of organizational culture. It's safe to say that he, like his book, is a real winner.

Outstanding actionable tips on shifting cultures 6. Juli 2012
Von Robert Richman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Dan's work on culture is incredible. The Culture Game creates a framework that get everyone on the same page, and it makes work fun again. If you want to see it immediately, just go to the chapter on Meetings and shift this typically awful corporate institution into one that people love, where you really get things done.
