Agile is characterized above all by effective and flexible manageability, high efficiency and quality in fast software delivery. Although over 71% of American companies have adopted Agile as the primary work method, Poles are considered leaders in this field.

In 2020, the American Chamber of Commerce, in its IP Index 2020, awarded Poland 70.56 points out of 100, recognizing our country as the safest among the popular outsourcing destinations.

The linguistic abilities of Poles also seem to be a significant factor. In 2021, Poland took 14th place in the world’s largest ranking of countries characterized by a high command of the English language. Polish developers often work for foreign companies, which provides them with constant communication in English and supports the culture of working with foreign companies.
