I would point a difference between Agile and RAD. If RAD is a timeboxed iterative approach, I think that it still has a very "waterfall" vision of activities: a sequence of analysis, design, code, test. Agile approaches tend to have a different order for development activities.

A recent survey shows that the adoption, ignorance or rejection rates for the CMMI are similar to the results achieved by a similar survey on Agile approaches. What does this mean?

In the comments about a recent survey on agile adoption (http://www.methodsandtools.com/dynpoll/oldpoll.php?Agile2), there is the fear that as agility is now becoming "trendy", we may see a number of organizations that will qualify now themselves as "agile", without implementing the essence of the agile software development practices. Has anybody see some signs of such situation?
Hello,

I think this is a complex topic. The best book I know on the topic is the one from Mike Cohn "Agile Estimating and Planning" (http://www.mountaingoatsoftware.com/book/1-agile-estimating-and-planning)

I think that the only certification you could find concerns the Scrum approach. You will find more information on http://www.scrumalliance.org/
