Agile software development has become well known to the community and is nowadays frequently used for the development of different kinds of software systems. Agile methods are widely spread and often adapted to the context-specific needs. The adaptations constitute reductions and/or extensions of agile practices. Yet, we have limited knowledge about the impact of some of the individual practices, which is crucial to justify organizational process improvements. To work on this topic, we initiated an international workshop and invited researchers and practitioners to work on different aspects related to the impact of agile practices (ImpAct). This paper presents the results and future work of the first ImpAct-workshop. We will report in particular on a meta-model for the impact of agile practices, how to deal with context-aspects, and we instantiated some impacts based on experiences of the workshop participants. In all these areas among other, we also identified some questions relevant for future work.
