What are the main communication challenges when Scaling Agility?

Siraj Sirajuddin / Jun 21, 2023

In a word, Clarity. 

In a few words, when Scaling Agile, communication becomes even more critical as multiple teams, stakeholders, and departments need to collaborate and align their efforts. Some of the main communication challenges we have observed are:

- Siloed communication

- Incomplete communication

- Misaligned expectations

- Information overload

- Cultural differences

- Resistance to change

To address these challenges, it's essential to foster a culture of open & clear communication and collaboration across teams, departments, and stakeholders. This may involve implementing communication channels, such as daily stand-ups, regular retrospectives, and visual management tools, to ensure that information is shared transparently and consistently. 

Above all, I would like you to focus on the quality of communication. 

It's also important to invest in training and coaching to ensure that everyone in the organization understands the agile principles and practices being used and is empowered to contribute to the success of the implementation.
