Abstract [en]

Due to Internet, the IT industry have seen rapid changes and to compete in the digital work, the organizations need more vigilance than ever before to respond to market changes and customer needs. Some organizations have opted to go agile to be more efficient in their software development but still deploying agile methodology and reaping its fruits further needs more research and empirical evidence.This research is a case study to evaluate the deployment of agile methodology in Easypark and explore its efficiency focusing on their structure and organization. Certain criterions are chosen to evaluate software development efficiency against that and to analyse what the deployment in the organization has led to.The method chosen for this study is a case study, where the empirical data is gathered through semi structured, and qualitative interviews from five senior employees in Easypark. The responses were analysed and reviewed under the light of theoretical background to elaborate the research question.The results of this case study revealed that efficiency in general have greatly been improved after adopting agile methods in Easypark and the core contributor is the permanent teams for different projects. There have been quite a few complications to deploy agile and that must be taken into consideration when other organizations plan to adopt agile methodologies.
