What Do Agile Teams Find Important for Their Success?
Paper i proceeding, 2018

Although the general benefits of agile methods have been shown, it is not always clear what makes the application of agile successful or not in a company. With this motivation, we investigate agile success factors, particularly from the viewpoint of teams. We conduct in-company surveys to collect and rank agile team success factors, comparing these results with success factors found in the literature. Our results introduce new success factors not previously discussed in related work. The findings emphasize the importance of team environment, team spirit, and team capability as opposed to previous work which emphasizes project management process and customer involvement. These findings can help find issues and improve the performance of agile teams.
