To examine software professionals' job perceptions related to different levels of agile-methodology use, researchers conducted a survey. The respondents generally reported high professional efficacy, high job satisfaction, moderate work overload, and low cynicism. The respondents with high agile-methodology use reported higher professional efficacy, higher job satisfaction, lower work ambiguity, lower work exhaustion, and lower individual autonomy than those with low agile-methodology use. No difference existed between the two groups regarding role conflict, work overload, and cynicism.
