It has often been stated, in various surveys and blogs, that Scrum is used in somewhere between 50% and 75% of all agile projects.
However, my research shows a different story.
I examined two different job sites, indeed.com, and the sfbay craigslist.
Indeed is a job aggregator that aggregates jobs from sites like Monster, Dice, etc.
SF Bay craigslist gives a more narrow look into the SF Bay Area job market.
In both cases, Scrum was used in approximately 25% of agile projects.
For instance, searching the following on indeed yields the following results:
agile 42,000 jobs
scrum 12, 000 jobs
kanban 1,499 jobs
So, does that mean Scrum is in decline, or that Scrum never approached the 50-75% that people claim it did?
