97% Will Continue To Use Scrum: Scrum Alliance

Scrum Alliance, the largest certifying body in the Agile community, today released State of Scrum 2017-2018, an annual report that this year shows Agile transformation firmly on the horizon for organizations around the world.

Approximately half of respondents – 53 percent – report current involvement in an Agile transformation, and of those not currently involved in an Agile transformation, 56 percent anticipate one in the future.

Respondents reported the primary catalyst for implementing a full-scale Agile transformation was the issue of process. As digital transformation has steadily increased demand for faster turnarounds, user-friendly platforms and flexible goals, modern business demands ever more Agile workflows.

While many respondents anticipate change to come and suggest it is necessary to reach business goals including improved satisfaction with products delivered, better time to market, better quality and improved staff morale, 57 percent say organizational design and culture is what holds Agile transformation back.

More than 2,000 Scrum professionals responded to the 2017-2018 survey, representing 91 countries and 27 industries. Virtually all – 97 percent – say they will continue to use Scrum in the future.
