Organizational Culture and Deployment of Agile Methods

A number of researchers have identified organizational culture as a factor that potentially affects the deployment of agile systems development methods. Inspired by the study of Iivari and Huisman (2007), which focused on the deployment of traditional systems development methods, the present paper proposes a number of hypotheses about the influence of organizational culture on the deployment of agile methods.

The presentation is based on an article in the "Agile Software Development: Current Research and Future Directions" book, which will be given to participants at the conference.
