Scott Ambler has a great presentation on his site (recommended to me by James Dobson) on which agile practices have been adopted. It’s worth a read. They are some clear learnings to be gleaned from the presentation, not least of which is that agile practices are being used widely, have little or low risk and have very positive results. This was a big survey: a total of 4332 respondents, coming from the full readership of Dr Dobb’s, a popular programming journal.
