For example, according to Gartner, in 2012 Agile development methodologies will be used in 80 percent of all software development projects. As the term implies, however, the techniques and best practices for the successful application of Agile project management processes are not static, they will continue to evolve. And, Agile principles and practices are used across many project domains, each with their own unique characteristics and challenges. So, best Agile project management practices will continue to be dynamic. The Agile debate is now turning from the tactical to the strategic.
