Why Read This Report
Thirteen years after Ken Schwaber, Jim Highsmith, and 15 others signed the Agile manifesto, Agile is still on everyone's lips. Data from Forrester's Q3 2013 Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey indicates that a whopping 90% of all teams practicing Agile development have adopted Scrum. As with any paradigm shift, the years of increasing momentum for Agile development are over, to be replaced by digestion and refinement. In the Agile context, "digestion and refinement" really means scaling — that is, adopting more mature Agile practices and extending and replicating point experiences throughout the enterprise to grow and broaden the business benefits. Our data shows that scaling Agile is hard — but it can be done. This report helps application development professionals understand what organizations are doing to scale Agile and recommends some good practices for doing so.
