Agile software development can be a great way for developing and delivering outstanding products. However, in reality things do not always run smoothly and the conditions are not always perfect to run a project agile. Time pressure and last minute changes to the scope for a current sprint. Different priorities for the program owner, the agile team and other stakeholders. When agile teams are faced with these challenges this can cause stress, frustrations and can negatively impact team’s efficiency, resilience and health, both short and long term. We will look at a few common challenges and practical strategies and tools to build and become a more resilient agile team.
