Agile delivers on what’s important.
This year we wanted to compare why people implement agile (one of the biggest areas of importance) against agile’s ability to actually deliver value in those areas. The results? Agile implementation, on the whole, delivers what organizations hope for. The chart below compares mean importance against actual improvements companies who implemented agile saw in over a dozen areas measured. The ability to manage changing priorities, productivity and project visibility were the top areas of importance and corresponding improvements delivered.
