The 15th State of Agile Report specifies more than a dozen reasons for failed transformations, but two stand out: 41% of survey respondents identified absence of leadership participation as one of the most significant barriers to agile adoption, while 42% of respondents identified inadequate management support and sponsorship as a similar barrier. These numbers underscore just how critical C-suite participation is to the success of agile transformation.
