Agile methodology was introduced in the mid 90’s while the agile manifesto was adopted in 2001. The rationale behind the introduction of the agile methodology was to uncover better ways of developing software that will meet the user’s expectation in an iterative controlled manner. With technological explosion and rift competition for market share, user experience and satisfaction can only be achieved through proper communication between stakeholders and innovative ways of doing things. Doing things differently is what the agile methodology brought. Despite the existence of this methodology for over 20 years now, South African software industry is only starting to realize its existence with a lot of companies jumping into the bandwagon. This paper presents the results of an empirical research of how the South African software industry perceive the methodology.
