As part of Leiden University we continuously research the application and evolution of agile methods in practice. Through research and co-creation with our partners we strive to contribute to scientific understanding of agile methods in practice. We help public and private organizations to excel through action research. Our current, non-exclusive list of research themes includes: multi-project governance, contracting, process improvement and serious games.
