How Agile Are You? 2010 Survey Results
|This survey was performed during the last week of July and first week of August 2010 and there was 293 respondents. The survey was announced via a link to the survey was posted on my IT Surveys home page at www.ambysoft.com/surveys/, announced on my Twitter feed, my mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Agile Alliance discussion group on LinkedIn, and the Yahoo discussion groups for test driven development (TDD), agile modeling, and agile databases.||
The survey results are summarized in my August 2010 Agile Update entitled How Agile Are We Really? The goal of the survey was to explore how well "agile teams" were at meeting the five agile criteria (Is the team delivering value? Is the team validating its own work? Is the team working closely with their stakeholders? Is the team self-organizing? Is the team improving their process?) which I've used for several years now to judge whether teams claiming to be agile actually are.
Some findings include:
Figure 1. Agile criterion: Value.
Figure 2. Agile criterion: Validation.
Figure 3. Agile criterion: Stakeholder involvement.
Figure 4. Agile criterion: Self organization.
Figure 5. Agile criterion: Continuous improvement.
Figure 6. How agile are teams which claim to be agile?
Figure 7. How agile are teams which are working on becoming agile?
You may use this data as you see fit, but may not sell it in whole or in part. You may publish summaries of the findings, but if you do so you must reference the survey accordingly (include the name and the URL to this page). Feel free to contact me with questions. Better yet, if you publish, please let me know so I can link to your work.
I'm sharing the results, and in particular the source data, of my surveys for several reasons:
