Many organizations have shifted to agile planning and delivery methodologies to improve consistency, reliability, and customer satisfaction in developing and enhancing applications. Embrace DevOps cultures, principles, and automation to improve deployment and other key performance indicators.
Many organizations have shifted to agile planning and delivery methodologies to improve consistency, reliability, and customer satisfaction in building and enhancing applications. They embrace devops cultures, principles, and automations to improve deployment frequencies, lead time to changes, mean time to resolve incidents, and other key performance indicators (KPIs).
Welcome to the 16th annual State of Agile report, the longest continuous annual series of reviews of Agile techniques and practices. 2022 is the year we not only started to get back together in person, but it was also a year we all began to embrace a true hybrid model (e.g. hybrid work environments, hybrid events, etc.). With this transition to hybrid, there was a lot to discuss regarding people’s experiences over the past two years in a mostly virtual Agile world and how to manage the new hybrid world while sometimes in the office and sometimes remote. As a result, we had a lot of dialogue about what adaptations we had made across our teams, processes, and technology that we use to codify our Agile practices.
Accordingly, this report will look at the State of Agile through the lens of the three key components of
Agile – the people, the processes, and the tools, to provide a snapshot of the year. Some of the notions we had about how to do Agile were changed by the pandemic, and we got to try some things out as expedients that may turn into the new standard way that we do things. One thing is certain, we are in a time of transition.
This report lets us see how year over year trends, what is working well, where change occurred and
where some of the same challenges and opportunities continue to present themselves. You may find
yourself having comparable results to survey respondents, learn a couple of ways to think about some things differently, and compare notes.
Agile continues to be top of mind for many enterprises, and with good reason.
According to 89%of respondents, high-performing Agile teams have:
People-centric values, clear culture, tools, and leadership empowerment.
That means, that if Agile is done successfully, benefit accrues not just to the individuals involved, but to the entire organization. That is a powerful reason to invest, and organizations continue to do so. Process was at the forefront of many of the changes in Agile. Traditionally, companies think about achieving one of three things: raising revenue, lowering costs, or reducing risk.
When we asked how they prioritize implementing Agile practices, over half of the respondents said it’s to accelerate time to market. The ability to move quickly yet be predictable is a key benefit that stands out from a host of others, including the aforementioned revenue and cost drivers
- 52% said it’s to Accelerate Time to Market
- 44% said it’s for Delivery Predictability
- 31% said it’s to Lower Risk
What is Driving Agile Penetration in the Organization
Respondents are not just interested in Agile for software development. 49% – almost half – apply Agile practices to the entire application delivery lifecycle.
We gave respondents a choice – we asked – were they adopting Agile for the original reason so many companies started Agile – to improve process and deliver efficiencies – or were they adopting Agile practices company-wide for Digital Transformation?
- 13% - Agile practices for IT and Software development teams
- 26% - Agile practices for company-wide Digital Transformation
- 61% - Both
The benefits accrued to the application delivery lifecycle are still being realized, but the advantages of an Agile approach are clear, so it is being implemented across a larger part of the organization. In line with these responses, we will see that business value and the ability to measure it come up frequently in this year’s results.
