I'm just now starting to decompose the report - crazy week at work and the Agile Uprising event Thursday took its toll...
I find this to be super compelling:
- While the overwhelming majority of respondents say they are still finding their way, they are seeing unprecedented success.
One of the most notable trends from the survey is the
importance of measuring how much business value
your organization is delivering. This year business value
has become a much more popular measure of an agile
Business value was cited as the second most popular
measure (46%) of an agile initiative’s success, rising
from fourth in the prior year. Conversely, it ranked as the
eleventh most popular measure (23%) on a day-to-day
basis. This highlights an important inconsistency between
how more strategic areas of the enterprise are measuring
success and how success is being measured at the team
When you have "some" distribution, you have a distributed team. Making a loose connection, as they did in this graphic, seems odd.
Managing distributed teams will not be going away, and teams that win will have to figure out how to be effective in this reality.
Scrum remains king.

- While it bothers me that XP as a framework is essentially dead, seeing the practices live on is awesome! I would love to see the number of respondents that don't know what practices are used, to show the separation of folks that create code and those that manage process.
