Abstract: Agil systemutveckling har under senare år fått ett stort uppsving och många företag säger sig idag arbeta agilt. Samtidigt finns det studier kring agil systemutveckling som pekar på att det finns många svårigheter med att fullständigt anamma ett agilt arbetssätt.

Description: Agile systems development has in recent years become very popular, and many companies today claims to be working agile. At the same time there are studies about agile system development that indicate that there are difficulties in fully adopting the agile way. The purpose of this qualitative study has been to examine how true Swedish IT-companies conduct their agile system development compared to agile theory, and we have specifically for the purpose of the study designed a framework that has been used as an analytical tool. The framework helped us to maintain a structured and objective approach when we examined the participating companies and their practices. The study showed that there were differences regarding how true to agile theory the different companies conducts their agile projects, and that the differences in part depends on how long the companies have been working agile. The result also showed that the companies themselves have full control over how agile they can carry out their projects in the areas of development team and project management. Within the areas of customer contact and contract negotiation however, the customer has a great influence on how agile a project may be conducted. The result also showed that there are social and technical aspects that affect the ability to conduct a project fully agile. The study is a contribution to the area of agile theory that addresses how practitioners adopt the agile way.
