  • The objective of this piece of research was to find out; to what extent a Software Development Methodology be used in Finance and Controlling, if the perceived benefits of agile methodology (Scrum) are similar to those obtained in Software Development, to what extent the practice of agile scrum in Finance and Controlling deviates from the theory (Scrum Guide). The following was found out about the use of agile scrum in Finance and Controlling. It cannot work on all projects. It will only be effective for projects; with complex problems, with unknown solutions, in unstable environments, with motivated teams requiring input or feedback from end users. Moreover, the results of the conducted online survey helped in finding out that the benefits achieved from the use of agile scrum in Finance and Controlling are similar to those achieved in Software Development. Lastly, the use of scrum in an analysed example in Finance and Controlling was deviating from the theory (The Scrum Guide). For example, a team had three Product Owners responsible for decision making, whereas it is required by the scrum guide to have just one. This resulted to a slow decision making process.
