Are you incorporating messaging apps into your collaboration practices?
Messaging apps play a huge part in our collaboration practices, especially when they offer persistence. We have a major initiative going on right now that requires resources from our agile teams to split their time across different team. It would be nearly impossible for them to do what they need to do without messaging apps.
