- Today's biggest agile challenge is communication – both managers and developers agreed that four of the top five barriers to agile involved working with other teams and customers.
- Stakeholders need to be move involved with new release projects – when it comes to sprints, the survey revealed that upstream and downstream stakeholders are being left out of the communication loop. IT Operations and Support are involved with less than 40% of release plans, despite being first in line to respond.
