There is an enormous growth in the number of companies that are adapting to agile methodology. However questions regarding the impact of culture factors on agile projects arise. Adapting to this agile culture can come with a few challenges. Hence for successful implementation of agile culture it is important to understand the relationship between agile culture and culture of an organization, the cultural issues related to each methodology of the agile culture and the agile practices and techniques that are necessary to address these issues. Questionnaire survey has conducted with agile experienced team members as well. Adding to these factors having a well designed Universal Agile Culture Model (UACM) that can guide the organization, management and team members to achieve higher levels of success in the progress of agile projects is important. This model has proposed based on literature review and the analysis from the questionnaire survey results.
