After looking into Lithuanian startups and their views on Agile we wanted to compare them with startups from other countries. This time we took on Germany and surveyed startups from various fields asking them what they knew about project management and agile.
While the two surveys yielded similar results in that Agile practices are well known and practiced, there were some key differences as well. Within Lithuanian startups Scrum and Kanban were used by an overall majority of Agile practitioners, while in German startups, they only racked up half of the votes, leaving more space for Scrumban and other methods.
Lithuanian and German startups also found disagreement in the positives and negatives of Agile. One party said that the practice increases team motivation, while other stated the opposite. Time planning, process control and result evaluation were also mentioned – see the full infographic to see how they compared.
