Background: Agile software development methods are commonly customized to a specific need, such as usage or adaptation of agile practices. In order to identify which agile practices organizations are using, we performed a systematic mapping study.
Objective: In this paper, our goal is to present the generalizable state of the practice in agile practices usage.
Method: We used triangulation of these study data and the data of the state of agile development survey related to agile practices usage. Results: This comparison shows similar results; obvious deviations and contradictions are discussed.
Conclusion: The results of the triangulation of the two studies can be considered as an initial generalizable state of the practice for the usage of agile practices.
