Context: Agile software development is widely used by small teams. Companies want to check their implementation of Agile for different reasons. Many Agile Maturity Models (AMM) exist that support practitioners in assessing and improving their agility. However, practitioners need to be able to make informed decisions on which one to use. Objective: The aim of this work is to enable the comparison of existing AMMs. Method: We identified 14 AMMs in a non-systematic literature review, considering non-scientific sources as well. We propose criteria for their comparison based on our experience and our understanding of practitioners’ needs. Results: We present twelve comparison criteria and show how the identified AMMs differ along those criteria. Conclusion: Practitioners get an overview of existing models and can select a suitable one with the help of the comparison criteria.
