In project management, and particularly software project management, there has been a shift from traditional plan based project management, to the agile event driven project management style. This paper identifies some of the most important agile practices a team should use, to succeed in an agile software project. Four participants in two different projects were interviewed. 53 often used practices were identified. 15 were found to be especially relevant in agile software projects. Six practices were related to quality, eight were related to scope and one was related to time. The results indicated that practices which improves customer feedback, helps the team to understand customer needs and improves the team process, are most likely to affect project success.
