Background: Agile Software Development is widely used nowadays and to measure its real usage we need to analyze how its practices are used. These practices have been categorized by several authors and some practitioners have suggested that technical practices have a lower usage level than organizational practices. Objective: In this study we aim to understand the actual usage of tech- nical and organizational agile practices in the Latin-American Agile community. Method: We conducted a three-stage survey in conferences of the Latin-Ameri- can Agile Community. Results: Organizational practices are much more used than technical ones. The number of practices used is a direct function of organi- zation experience using agile. The difference between technical and organiza- tional practices reduces with the experience of the organization using agile. Team size and project duration seem to have no effect in number of practices used.
