A Chaos Engineering survey about acceptance and maturity within an organisation

Hi, my name is Linda and I'm currently conducting my Master's thesis in Information Systems at Uppsala University. I would be very grateful and glad if you would like to respond to the survey. It will take approximately about 10 - 15 minutes.

Chaos Engineering is the discipline of experimenting on a software system in production in order to build confidence in the system's capability to withstand turbulent and unexpected conditions. Chaos Engineering is becoming more popular and therefore this study has been conducted to measure the acceptance and maturity of Chaos Engineering within an organisation.

Thank you in advance.
