The State of Scrum 2013: a Report from the Scrum Alliance
At agile42 we practise Scrum each day and we've been very pleased to see earlier this year the publication of the 2013 State of Scrum Report by the Scrum Alliance. The work is now available for free download and includes a PDF report, a webinar to watch online and a webinar presentation deck.
Scrum Alliance is a nonprofit professional membership organization providing Advocacy, Community and Education to encourage and support the widespread adoption and effective practice of Scrum. This industry report is based on input from almost 500 business professionals in more than 70 countries. Participants represented various industries from IT to education, finance, government, healthcare, telecommunications, and more. Key findings from the report include the observation that Scrum is growing rapidly, not only in software development, but in industries far beyond. The report also reveals the leading reasons organizations are adopting Scrum and contains three recommendations for successfully practicing Scrum.
We are happy to collaborate with the Scrum Alliance worldwide, not only participating at various Scrum Gatherings and Coaches Retreats but also providing coaching services to the organization through our North American coaches Brad Swanson and David Sharrock since last summer.
