Abstract

Background: Several challenges can occur when an organization decides to adopt agile practices as a strategy for developing its projects, such as changing leader's approaches and skills.

Objective: This article's objective is to present the current scenario of academic production on agile practices and the relationship with the strategy of organizations in digital transformation projects.

Method: The present study uses bibliometric and bibliographic research, and it was possible to present an academic scenario about agile practices as a strategy for digital transformation in organizations. For the research corpus, 116 scientific articles published in the ISI Web of Science and Scopus databases were considered.

Results: From the 116 articles, it can be noted that 88% of the authors have only one published work. A highlight point is related to the constructs found in the research. It is noteworthy that the primary constructs are related to the strategy of digital transformation processes and techniques and the relationship with agile practices, such as strategy, Big Data, Industry 4.0, Culture, and Organizational Change.

Conclusions: As it´s a subject in the formation and with recent publications concentrated in the last three years, it is recommended that the panorama of production on the theme combined with the constructs held contribute to the strategy of digital transformation processes and techniques and the relationship with practices agile organizations.
