Abstract [en]

Agile methodologies are often not used "out of the box" by practitioners, instead they select the practices that fit their needs best. However, little is known which agile practices the practitioners choose. This study investigates agile practice adoption by asking practitioners which practices they are using on project and organizational level. We investigated how commonly used individual agile practices are, combinations of practices and their frequency of usage, as well as the degree of compliance to agile methodologies (Scrum and XP), and as how successful practitioners perceive the adoption. The research method used is survey. The survey has been sent to over 600 respondents, and has been posted on LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Google groups. In total 109 answers have been received. Practitioners can use the knowledge of the commonality of individual practices and combinations of practices as support in focusing future research efforts, and as decision support in selecting agile practices
