What is agile communication?

In thinking about some things for the Agile Skills Project, I realized that agile teams communicate differently than non-agile teams.

It seems to me that agile communication aims to be:
  • public (vs private or secret) [public within the entire team, not public as in news media]
  • early (vs delayed)
  • spoken, preferably in person (vs email)
  • free from judgment (vs assigning blame)
  • osmotic (vs selectively broadcast)
  • flat (vs hierarchical)
A significant enabler of agile communication is the Supportive Environment Agile Pillar.

What characteristics of agile communications do you notice?
