Agile Development Adoption and Best Practices 2015

November, 2015


After more than two decades of maturation, agile development methodologies have a track record of speeding the software development cycle, improving functionality, and raising user satisfaction ratings. While adoption remains only moderate, agile development continues to gain adherents as more organizations face the necessity of continuous adaptation to a changing environment, our research shows.

We look at adoption by organization size and sector, and we outline some of the best practices. (13 pp., 5 fig.)
