Agile adoption has hit a brick wall

Personally I’m not so sure.

I’ve commented before about surveys. They’re potentially unreliable because it depends so much on which companies were in the sample.

Maybe they surveyed similar companies? Maybe the surveyed companies had adopted agile development in small pockets before and now it’s mainstream?

In reality, I think it’s very hard to judge.

    Kelly – great blog. I wouldn’t say agile adoption is peaking, but from Scott Ambler’s presentation I would pick up on the increase in evidence supporting agile. The more evidence we have, the better we can educate .

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
