Version One now Conducting 3rd Annual Survey on Agile

Joe Little wrote on the Agile Annoucements list:
Version One is doing its 3rd annual survey on Agile.

As they say in Chicago, home of Barack, vote early and often.
My Quick Poll on Scrum Management Tools produced some very surprising results - in particular that it appears that there has been a dramatic rise in the preference for software based solutions over cards and paper, at least compared to the agile poll taken on the scrumdevelopment group in January 2007. I am very curious to see if this poll confirms the results from this blog (which you can see in the right column and I plan to compare shortly with the 2007 results).

There was also some debate as to whether my quick poll was being influenced by a 'get out the vote' action by the Software suppliers, a concern which has to be even stronger when the supplier is sponsoring the poll.

Still, it's one of the few sources of long term data there is, and last year the claimed to have received 1700 filled questionnaires, so I will join with Joe and encourage you to vote!

P.S. Polls close on July 21st.
