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 success at a Fortune 500.
But 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 I run into variations of these on every project to this day.
I hope this short story helps you avoid culture problems if you ever want to change your software development team.
