This paper describes how the SoftDesign increased adherence of their agile development projects to Scrum. Several Agile Maturity models have been studied and, based on a Decision Making Model, the Scrum Maturity model was selected. Then, we could realize and implement the necessary improvements. The result of this work was positive for the company, but it generated a reflection between the compatibility of following a reference model and work with agility.
