// Panel:
Culture: the invisible ingredient

Even when neither Continuous Delivery nor DevOps as terms contain the word "culture", both heavily imply an adequate culture in the company to be successful. But what exactly does it mean, to have a culture that allows for Continuous Delivery and/or DevOps? Is it just the new buzzword to create some budget for reorganisation, or is it just a label to put after having a Culture Taskforce meeting for a while, or is it essential or even inevitable to really change the company culture to succeed? Do startups per se have a culture allowing them to deliver continuously through inexorable DevOps, and how are classic enterprises different? We discuss it in the panel.
