Re: [scrumdevelopment] Anyone have stats on attrition rates after agile adoption?
- Michele --
Can you be a bit more specific?
Attrition with respect to what? The scrum team itself? The product group (assuming it's bigger than the team)? The company altogether?

definitive numbers anywhere?
- They aren't definitive numbers, but Pete Deemer and Gabrielle
Benefield's great summary of Scrum at Yahoo! Concludes with a couple
of stats that indicate happier and therefore lower attrition amongst
"85% of team-members stated that they would continue using Scrum if
the decision were solely up to them."
"Team Morale: 52% of respondents reported Scrum is better or much
better; 9% reported Scrum is worse or much worse; 39% reported Scrum
is about the same."
I hope that helps a little.
