True Agile - Principle - Cross Functional Collaboration

Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
Teams see the end-product as a common deliverable (and not just a developerís deliverable). They commonly feel responsible for the quality, functionality and planning/budget of the product. There is an open communication between the stakeholders and this enables a culture where difficulties are resolved quickly.

The day to day communication between developers and business makes it easier to get feedback on proposed solutions. The developers can get their feedback in an early stage. This is a good measure if the developers are building the correct software without spending a lot of effort on useless prototypes.
Getting developers and business working together on a day to day basis creates a common knowledge about the purpose of the new system. Developers get to know the business goal and purpose of the system and the business people see more about the technical background of the systems technique.

When developers and business are working together on a day to day basis they will keep focus on the delivery of the end-product. The need and purpose of the new systems becomes practically clear to de developers. They see the need for the new system on a day to day basis. The business sees the constant growth of the new system and can decide to implement a part of the system before all modules are finished. The business sees the need for quick feedback and focus on the systems prime objective. This hopefully will overcome unnecessary discussions (and delay) about small, low priority features.

Working together on a day to day basis will make the creation of the product known to most of the stakeholders. Most of the stakeholders have seen and used the system for many times in tests and demoís before it is taken into production. This will make the acceptance of the new system easier. Stakeholders are more motivated to use the new system.
