Introducing agile development and SCRUM as a methodology into the Erstattungskodex Maintainance project (the "Erstattungskodex" is one of the most important central master data administration IT systems (administration of prices, medical information and conditions for use of medical products in the austrian social security system)). Agile development has been a major change for the austrian social security system (government oriented with "old fashioned" detailed job description in the development process, previously using an own flavour of the V-Modell), but the project / phase / environment (several "user" projects refactored, several political "changes") has been ideal and the use of the methodology has been that successfull, that based on the experience in this project a large part of the software development of Hauptverband / ITSV has been moved in the direction of agile development (End of 2011 more than 20 Certified Scrum Masters are employed in ITSV).
