Agile has not only gone mainstream, it‘s gone global. Data patterns on Agile team performance on time-tomarket and quality have been emerging over the last decade from research by QSM Associates. Results have been published in research reports, books and articles around the world. In 2012 Columbus, Ohio USA participated in the first ever „Agile vs. the World“ study. Data patterns revealed schedule performance that was 31% faster than industry norms. More astonishing was the fact that defect levels were 75% lower than industry norms. Enter Munich Germany. At their OOP 2013 conference, the Columbus results were presented to a European audience. The result was an Agile Challenge; German companies decided to participate in a QSM study of their own to challenge Columbus. Who‘s winning? What patterns are revealed regarding productivity, time-to-market, effort/cost, and quality? Come join us for an inside look at data patterns for both Munich and Columbus, illustrated side by side. The results might surprise you. You will see how both cities compared against the QSM world database of 12,000 completed projects. And finally, we will discuss what future might lie ahead.
