Abstract

The agile development methodologies have become increasingly popular since early 2000 and can offer significant improvements in business. There have been previous research papers showing evidence to either approval or disapproval of this assertion for the software houses in different parts of the world but so far there has been no such survey done for the software houses in Pakistan. In order to learn this and the factors that drive the adoption of agile methodology, their challenges and benefits in Pakistan I have used a survey strategy which enabled data collection from different organizations working in Pakistan. This survey reveals many questions along with the main reason for the adaptation or rejection of agile methodology in Pakistan. The survey identifies that the lack of experience and the software complexity as the biggest obstacles for the adoption of agile practices in Pakistan. This survey also reveals that the increase in software productivity, managing change and the release of quality product with in the schedule are some of the major benefits of the agile methodology. This paper presents this along with other findings accompanied by relevant data.
