Agile Forum - 171128

 "2017 State of Scrum Report – How is the most popular Agile approach to projects being applied worldwide!"

presented by Marty Maness, Scrum Alliance/IT Director

The Agile Forum meetings offer an opportunity for professional networking and knowledge sharing with other agile practitioners as well as provide a learning environment for professionals interested in learning about agile techniques. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Presentation 

Today, executives and organizations are faced with fierce competitive challenges that require them to continuously adapt. Flexible Agile practices such as Scrum are uniquely positioned to create business success even beyond software development. So that you can keep abreast of how these practices are evolving, Scrum Alliance publishes the State of Scrum annually.

The State of Scrum reports offers comprehensive coverage of global usage of Scrum -- who are using Scrum, where, how, and why. The report also looks at how and where Scrum is best adopted and is growing.

The purpose of this presentation is to share the results of the latest state of scrum survey so that practitioners understand where Scrum is successful and emerging.
