Abstract Based on a web based survey of 158 IT software development practitioners, mostly from different organizations, this paper examines the application of Software Configuration Management (SCM) process in adaptable software development environments. From the literature review six independent variables and five dependent variables were derived to answer the research question "how does organization size impact on the usage of SCM process in adaptable software development environments?" The six hypotheses confirmed that organization size does not impact on the usage of SCM process in adaptable software development environments. Also, all sizes of organizations consider SCM process valuable and have similar software traceability approaches with different process formalities and tools sophistications. This study helps SCM practitioners to build a better understanding of the relationships between adaptable software development environment, lean principles and practices, and the tools and technologies established to facilitate the coexistence of Agile and SCM practices.
