Some common challenges discussed include:

  • A lack of understanding organization-wide of the word ‘agile
  • A belief that the solution to being ‘agile’ falls square on the shoulders of development and engineering teams
  • The finance and legal reasons a fixed-scope, fixed-date, and fixed-cost project are often created
  • A lack of tools to predict software development project completion dates
  • Lack of proper education on how to work in an agile way.
  • High defect rates and low quality with long QA cycles
  • Most team members work on several projects at once reducing focus
  • No understanding of how to coordinate many teams, sometimes in remote geographies, on one initiative.
