Abstract [en]

In recent years, agile software development methods have become increasingly popular throughout the world. Today there are a number of different agile methods and they all rest on the Agile Manifesto that was formulated in 2001 as a reaction to the traditional software processes.The aim of this thesis is to make a survey of some of the agile methods used today and to see how they are being used in practice. It consists of two parts: a literature study and an interview study with people working in the software business. First, a definition of agile methods is proposed and a number of different agile methods are described. Second, the interviews are being analysed with special focus on communication, collaboration, expectations and results. Third, the theory and practice are compared and the results are being analysed.Only three of the agile methods were used by the companies, and Scrum was the most common one. The respondents had all adopted the agile methods to their needs and they all seemed very pleased with this way of working. Their expectations on the agile methods were mainly satisfied. They stressed that documentation is still needed but is now done differently. Communication, both within the team and with the customer is also very important.
