Being part of a company that merges with or, even more harrowing, is acquired by another company can be a nerve-wracking experience. You may have hard-won improvements in your work environment thanks to implementing agile practices and worry that the new company culture won't support them. Worse, the new company may profess to "do agile" too but what they do looks very different than anything you associated with true agility. How can this new blended corporate family learn to work together?
There is a lot of information out there about agile product development. Unfortunately, not all of it is useful. Lack of knowledge about how agile principles really work mean you are likely to run into information that is incomplete, misleading or sometimes just plain wrong.
