This is of course the project sponsor who is funding and promoting the project as well as the future users of the system. But there can also be others, such as the workers council, competing activities or interest groups in the company, the purchase department and so on. A stakeholder can also be a group that has a negative attitude against the project.

All communication to all stakeholders must be managed in the best interest of the project.

The team’s way of working is a composition of practices, instead of applying a generic “one-size-fits-all” process. The resulting process will be tailored to a team’s needs and context. Even within the same organization, different teams can adopt different practices. Practitioners: While agility will definitely need active sponsorship and support by top management, the actual implementation will be shaped bottom-up by the teams themselves.
