Dominant Player? Under the commercial suppliers, VersionOne was the most top ranked response (54% of those voting for a commercial tool), followed by ScrumWorks at 17%, and TargetProcess and Scrum for Team System (8% each).
- Representative of two suppliers other than the winner left comments on the blog while the poll was running and so were aware of the results as they developed. If they had wanted to orchestrate a get-out-the-vote campaign, they could have (and maybe they did!).
- I did put out a get-out-the-vote reminder on the scrumdevelopment list. It produced little if any effect.
- As I watched the voting progress, the development seemed organic: the pattern was established early and subsequent voting did not change the percentages much.
P.S. For those of you who want the details: the poll data can be downloaded as an ODF spreadsheet.
[Update: July 7: I have published a Directory of Scrum Management Tools with links to all the suppliers]
