Finding ways to engage your team in ways that allow for collective learning about what works and what doesn't is beneficial in helping to solidify how work gets done in startups.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that it’s going to take more than a beer keg and an in-house masseuse to drive sustained performance of your startup. What can you do to shape a more meaningful culture for your rapidly growing company?

In order to stay one step ahead of the competition in the war for market share, many tech companies have begun to fundamentally shift how they work in order to increase the velocity with which they build, test and release software. What originally started from the agile movement is now evolving into a new philosophical way of working: DevOps.

Doug Bewsher, CEO of Leadspace, spent some time with me recently to share some tips on how to scale and evolve organizational culture at a tech startup.

Until a few years ago, saying the “culture”-word around tech types was likely to be met with an eye roll and a prompt end to the conversation. This certainly isn’t the case anymore and it’s due, in large part, to increasing awareness that the tech industry is collectively living through some significantly disruptive transformations.
DevOps as a cultural shift within the tech community calls into question the fundamental bedrocks of how work used to be done in order to remain competitive in today’s rapidly evolving business environment.

Understanding organizational culture as another key aspect of shaping M&A integration success.
As anyone who has experienced the reality of a transaction knows, the road to living up to financial expectations of a merger or acquisition can be fraught with any number of land mines. And one of the more overlooked derailing factors to consider is organizational culture.
