- Organizational Culture Considerations with Agile
- The organizational culture impacts to an Agile transformation are profound. Successful implementations need support from the team members, management, and executives to embrace new ways of completing work and collaborating.

Along the way, we learn about the mechanisms in place today to help produce robust and secure code.
