Preliminary Analysis of success factors in Agile software development projects: Software Development

Tuesday 4:00pm - 4:30pm, CITRENZ (CITRENZ 1 Room)

Software projects consume significant resources in their development. These projects use a variety of different approaches to development, including Agile methods. Not all projects succeed and a variety of project success factors have been established or proposed for many of the development approaches. However, the success factors for projects using Agile methods have not been well evidenced to date. This study reports on preliminary analysis of the views of members of Agile software development teams on factors that contribute to the success or failure of projects adopting an Agile approach. Software developers, testers, business analysts and product owners were surveyed using an online questionnaire. Fifty-nine responses were gathered and analysed. Respondents reported factors contributing to success include understanding the project, customer involvement and clear communication with and within the team. Factors contributing to project failure include factors outside the control of the team such as multiple intermediaries between the customer and development team and a lack of understanding of the Agile process by client representatives.
