Agile Software Development Teams by Christoph Schmidt

By Christoph Schmidt

This publication explores how agile improvement practices, particularly pair programming, code overview and automatic checking out, aid software program improvement groups to accomplish greater. Agile software program engineering has develop into the normal software program improvement paradigm during the last decade, and the insights supplied listed here are taken from a large-scale survey of eighty specialist software program improvement groups operating at SAP SE in Germany. furthermore, the ebook introduces a singular size device for assessing the functionality of software program improvement groups. No earlier learn has researched this subject with an analogous info set comprising insights from greater than 450 specialist software program engineers.

Overall, researchers have studied very diverse aspects of agile software development. Missing boundaries as well as a missing understanding about the definition of software development agility complicates the integration of the research stream. Therefore, this study intends to clearly define how it conceptualizes the multifaceted concept of agile software development as well as how it defines software development team performance (see Sect. 1). In conclusion, agile software development is a software development approach with growing popularity since the early 2000s.

4 Research foci on agile software development in the IS Community in the influence of agile software development on specific teamwork factors and, in turn, the influence of these factors on the performance of agile teams. The following paragraphs provide an overview of the most influential publications for each category and summarize the main findings. Agility Concept Every good concept needs a strong underlying logic serving as a “theoretical glue” (Whetten 1989). In ISD research, however, it seems that “almost every piece of research adopts a unique interpretation of agility” (Abrahamsson et al.

4 Discussion of the Literature 35 measurement of teamwork aspects in software development, (b) more rigorous industrial cases, (c) better understanding of dynamic configurations, (d) increased emphasis on team cognition, and (e) a better understanding of multicultural context of software development teams to advance the understanding of agile software development teams. This study seeks to contribute to the reviewed literature streams addresses these research challenges. The author agrees to these conclusions seeing both an interest among researchers and a need for further research on agile software development.
