The Agile Culture Code - the T E C-Model for agile working

The TEC model, standing for Transparency, Empowerment, and Collaboration, is a powerful framework derived from psychological research and agile transformation insights. This model identifies the nine key elements of organizational agility, providing leaders and teams with a clear and compelling structure to pinpoint blind spots and opportunities for change. It recognizes that the behavior and interaction of individuals and teams drive agility, making organizational culture a potential hurdle and, simultaneously, a potent lever for transformation.


The T E C model is designed to activate the untapped potential within organizations, teams, and individuals. Through a survey, the TEC model reveals an organization's strengths, weaknesses, and blind spots hindering successful agile operations. It aids in identifying both organizational and behavioral impediments, offering guidance for navigating through culture change. The TEC model provides a comprehensive and actionable framework for organizations seeking to embed agility into their culture.

“An extremely useful tool for anyone struggling to navigate the tricky world of cultural change in organizations.” M. Wade, Professor at IMD, Director of the Global Center for Digital Business Transformation

“The framework expands existing knowledge into a fundamental tool to drive cultural change. (...)“ R. Engelbrecht, Agile Practitioner, Cape Town, South Africa
