PMI's research shows that the use of agile methodologies has tripled from December 2008 to May 2011. In fact, it is predicted that by the end of 2012, agile development methods will be used on 80% of all projects involving software development. Agile methods are now used by many other industries besides just software. Don't miss the Agile boat!
