State of Scrum

Scrum Alliance has an interesting report on the State of Scrum – 500 professionals in over 70 countries were surveyed for the report.  Of interest:

  • Culture is key – corporations must aid an agile culture encouraging collaboration
  • Scrum rules from an agile approach, followed by Kanban – no surprise
  • Q12 and the PMO says a lot
  • Certification, Q13, is curious.  I’d be interested in how many have actually read a scrum book prior to certification 😉
  • Distributed teams, Q24, 24%
  • Daily stand-ups, Q29 only 59%???  I wonder how many of those daily stand-ups are actually well run?
  • Retrospectives, Q30, 62% – probably the same people who hold daily stand-ups.  40% need to leave the building fast
  • Q31 – CI.  To me this just confirms that the software engineering community is still so lost in the wilderness on basic engineering principles or building software 😦
