ThoughtWorks recently published a new survey about the “Agile Adoption in India – Survey 2011” carried out earlier this year in partnership with CIOL to understand the Agile adoption trends in business and IT in India.
The survey captured responses from 770 IT practitioners and executives from 330 organisations across the country.
The survey results provided some key insights into Agile adoption trends in India.
Most organisations following the Agile methodology experienced significantly faster time-to-market of 68%, with 68% more adaptability to changing requirements from clients and improved IT productivity and quality, which led to a better ROI of 60%, and an increased project visibility of 60%.
“The results showed that progress towards Agile is being made, but that adoption must be carefully managed to introduce and embed all relevant practices, otherwise anticipated benefits might not be realised.” – Sudhir Tiwari, Managing Director, ThoughtWorks India.
