The implementation of Agile Methods is often subject to failure, with cultural issues being the most commonly named reason. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the relationship between organizational culture and the deployment of Agile Methods. Built from a combination of systematic literature review and Latent Dirichlet Allocation, it presents a set of cultural characteristics that constitute a successful Agile organization. The results serve as a more robust definition of Agile Culture and help to assess an organization’s cultural readiness for the implementation of Agile Methods.
