Does a company’s culture match their tech?
I think so.
If your company is generally disorganized.
Chances are your tech will also be—out of sorts.
By the same token.
If your company has a lot of rules and policies then more than likely…
Will have all sorts of intricacies with your tech.
That may or may not need to be there.
Chaos begets chaos.
Calm begets calm.
I have been reading the book It Doesn’t Have To Be Crazy At Work by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.
The book shares Basecamp’s experience in trying to create a calm company.
It’s a great read if you get a chance.
But I digress.
Let’s pause and think about your company for a moment.
What is your culture like?
Is it rigid?
Is it loose?
Is it friendly?
Whatever it is.
It is very likely that your tech matches your culture.
And if your company is struggling with its culture.
Your tech is struggling as well.
Your company culture is what you do.
It’s how your company acts.
Your company's tech is the same way.
Your tech is a reflection of your companies commitment to reliability, recoverability, security, and productivity.
And that’s a pretty big pill to swallow.
I get that.
And that’s why I help companies to get their tech right.
Tech just might help your culture.
