Spot the Trends
Year-Over-Year

This year, the data continues to speak for itself, revealing that marketing departments who shift all their teams to Agile ways of working far outperform their peers who keep agility isolated. 

Driven by the competitive business landscape, volatile economic climate, and stagnant or shrinking marketing budgets, marketers are continuously maturing in their adoption of Agile, which we've been observing for 7 consecutive years.
