Choosing your approach to a transition to Agile software development hinges more on your organizationís culture than on industry, marketplace, economy, or type of product. But how can you tell whether your culture will support adopting Agile? Will it succeed at your company? Will it provide the results you want? In this talk, Diana Larsen will describe one way to diagnose your organizational culture, determine how youíll measure success, and, working with culture, identify the next steps to getting the results you want.
