Agile Maturity+ Assessment (Survey)

Run a survey to assess your teams agile maturity using the Agile Maturity+ Assessment (Conversation Set).

Surveys should be carried out on a regular basis such as quarterly to continually monitor and improve agile maturity.

We recommend keeping surveys below 10 minutes to complete. Long surveys can cause fatigue and result in poor data quality.

Survey structure

    • Questions are grouped by category to ensure that the survey is easy to follow for participants.
    • We recommend asking 3 - 10 rated scale questions followed by 1 conversation starter for each category, as survey's are naturally measurement focused over conversational.
    • The conversation starters for each category relates directly to the rated scale asked immediately before it to ensure a logical flow for the participants.
    • Including messages, instructions and encouragement throughout the survey helps with understanding and engagement.


📝 Note: This survey can also be run as a weekly conversation set instead.
