Abstract

FLEXI Agile Adoption Industrial Inventory (FLEXI AAII) was intended to amass current knowledge and experiences about agile adoption strategies in large settings. It was conducted among industrial partners of FLEXI project (see acknowledgements) by reviewing project deliverables, publications and other relevant material. The ground for FLEXI AAII was based on an extensive literature analysis on existing agile adoption strategies. FLEXI AAII identified new approaches to manage the restrictions of adopting conventional agile methodologies, along with a comparison to reported approaches in the literature. These new approaches are: combining different agile adoption strategies and taking multidimensional nature of agility in the preliminary activities of agile adoption into account.
