What is the Agile Research Network?
The Agile Research Network (ARN) is a collaboration of researchers from two UK universities at the forefront of investigating Agile methodologies.
- The Open University has a strong record of research in the use of Agile methods in practice
- The University of Central Lancashire has a stronger teaching focus amongst Undergraduate level, a practitioner-focussed Masters programme, and a growing Agile research group
What do they do?
As Agile methodologies mature and become mainstream it is important to understand what implications and influences they have on organisations and individuals, and to assess the scope and nature of their effectiveness.
ARN seeks to work closely with practitioners in their place of work to gain such insights and then disseminate practical findings to a wider audience.
Agile Success Factors - A qualitative study about what makes Agile projects successful
The Agile Research Network (ARN) have teamed up with the Swiss Agile Research Network and the Victoria University of Wellington to further their research into Business Agility.
We would like to invite you and your organisation to take part in this Business Agility survey.
White paper access
The Agile Research Network (ARN) team is very active and is continuously involved in various conferences and workshops. The results of ARN work is usually published as either white papers or conference papers. This page provides an up-to-date reflection of ARN activities.
How are they funded?
ARN is funded through a number of sources; currently by the two university members and the Agile Business Consortium. As the network grows the intention is to extend opportunities to other industry partners and funding bodies to contribute to this ongoing industry-based research initiative.
