According to recent research from Forrester, 60% of executives identified that their companies are on a five-year journey to adopt agile approaches. Despite this enthusiasm for agile practices, more companies are continuing to use waterfall tactics (43% this year compared to 29% in 2019). What’s more, only a quarter of the executives ranked their teams as “highly proficient” in agile practices, and even fewer felt their company had fully invested in the necessary structural changes required to support an agile transformation.
Clearly there’s a disconnect between wanting to be agile and successfully implementing agile methods. This is especially true at large organizations that have entrenched processes and multiple stakeholders who need to connect and communicate. A partner like Contegix can help make agile methods stick so organizations can take advantage of its benefits—and not be tempted to revert to more siloed waterfall practices.
