The agile methods Scrum and Extreme Programming are becoming popular and several companies have implemented practices of these methodologies. Many of them have not been successful in its use, just because of the lack of knowledge of the procedures and conditions that influence successfully in the execution of these practices. To collaborate to this scenario, we present in this paper a list of procedures and conditions, captured from the literature, which influence positively into the deployment of agile practices. To get the ranking of these procedures, we conducted a survey with project managers, architects, product managers and developers with experience in using Agile methods. In this paper we will present the following results: procedures and conditions that most positively and negatively influence the execution of practices and procedures and conditions that do not influence them.
