Abstract [en]

Literature shows that as many as 82% of the organizations that adopt agile methods experience problems in their agile adoptions. Despite this, very few reports have provided guidelines for how to conduct software method adoption. This paper suggests a process model of software method adoption and lists contextual factors for guiding the deployment of software development methods. The adoption model and the contextual factors have been evaluated in six industrial method adoption projects and they have proven to be useful for guiding organizations in their software method adoption efforts.
