Article: How to Spread Technical Practices Like TDD in an Organization

One of the success factors for Agile and DevOps is developers changing the way they work and adopting practices like Test-Driven Development (TDD). It’s not something that just happens by itself, and many of the “usual” ways of introducing change fail for TDD. This article outlines some of the things that actually do work and explains “Samman,” which is a coaching method used with developers.
