Activities for improving the value creation process in software development organizations have been an ongoing endeavour over the past decades. Agile methodologies particularly have been widely adopted over the past two decades following the release of the Agile Manifesto. Organizations at different scales deploy agile transformation programs at different scales and measuring the success of such programs becomes increasingly relevant for the industry. In order to evaluate the success of such transformation programs, and also to identify the capabilities of units adopting agile as their way of work, assessing agility becomes the problem that needs to be tackled. Additionally, it is important for organizations to evaluate their current and target states with respect to agility, to identify areas of improvement and obtain actionable feedback as a result of such evaluations. In this paper, we introduce our capability determination mechanism for development organizations working in an agile way. As an outlook, we aim to conduct a case study to see the underlying model and the proposed capability determination mechanism in action.
