The Swiss Agile Study is a biannual survey about the usage of software development methods in Switzerland and how they are being applied. The survey is conducted by the University of Applied Sciences Zurich and the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland.

The study consists of two independent surveys addressing both IT professionals and IT companies which either follow agile or plan-driven processes. The goal of the study is to get an extensive overview of the application and distribution of Agile software development methods, techniques and practices in Switzerland.
