Abstract

Software processes have evolved significantly since the first formal appearance of software engineering. The academia and the industry have introduced, embraced or rejected various methodologies that are more or less efficient in theory and in practice. A current popular trend can be found in Agile methodologies widely adopted in the last decade. Since software processes are constantly evolving, it is vital to see how they evolve over time. This work presents the current state of the adoption of Agile methodologies with an emphasis on Scrum development method. Study results from 44 different countries were collected during the months of March and April 2012. The results are enlightening in order to understand how Agile development and Scrum are viewed today, to see where their success factors lie, discover if they offer benefits in comparison to heavyweight approaches and discuss their future evolution.
