The paper describes the current status of agile maturity models. It shows where such models can be found and it contains a structured top level compilation of the currently available agile maturity models. In the second section, the paper describes an approach to analyze these agile maturity models, extracts their content, maps it to a reference model and then synthesizes the real agile maturity issues. The paper also describes the needs for scientific research in this topic. The paper will not present its own Agile Maturity Model. This will be the task for further research. It intends however to compile current agile maturity model thinking linking it to philosophical issues partly also raised in recent initiatives like the SPI Manifesto, the ECQA PI Manager Certification Scheme and SEMAT.
