Due to rapid changes in the economic and technological environment, the organizations are placed under increasing pressure for agility and efficiency. Thus, the traditional structures tend to be replaced by newer, flexible structures, adapted to various events occurring inside and outside companies. Regarding Information Technology, the science of project management has become very important. Software development is becoming very complex and to make it even harder customer requirements changes very frequently making the process even more difficult. Traditional SDLC are not able to meet the requirements of the market. The agile software development methodology is introduced and has become one of the most commonly used software development techniques. Agile software development aims at fast, light and effective development that supports customer’s business without being chaotic or rigors. However, little is known about how effective and efficient Agile practices are over the traditional methodologies, and what their success factors are. The paper analyzes agile methodology by identifying its strengths and weaknesses from a practical point of view. In this study, we have conducted a survey with a manager and developers at a software company in Turkey to identify critical success factors while using agile methodology. The paper is relevant for practitioners, by presenting the main benefits and disadvantages of using AGILE in Information Technology companies.
