Integrating new practices into software development processes requires previous research and planning; thus, the transition becomes easier, the maturity is achieved in a gradual but constant manner, and consequently, the organization fulfills its business objectives. This paper describes the experience of a Mexican software development organization that integrated agile methods into its CMMI-DEV level 5 development processes. This case study identifies and discusses quantitative and qualitative benefits related to the competitive level of the organization, enriched ways of working, optimization of resources and time, and encouraging a motivating working environment.
