A Tale Of Software Development Culture Change – Gone Wrong!
Let me tell you a story about one of the weirder software projects I’ve been on – and how trying to change the culture went wrong.
Early in my programming career I had a taste of some successful projects at a Fortune 500, and I focused entirely on technology and basically had *no* soft skills.
So coming into a small company that wanted to grow their technology business seemed like it would be “easy”.
Little did I know how simple decisions about the relationships I made (and didn’t make) would lead to disaster.
There were also things outside my control, and those always seem present on every project to this day.
