While change is inevitable, it is also difficult, particularly in larger organizations. As enterprises grapple with an ever increasing rate of technical change, they risk demotivating - and losing - the key employees implementing these necessary changes. Without bringing your talent along in a holistic way, attempts to level-up your business culture and technical stack will fail.
