Toward a framework for software development across organisational boundaries

Toward a framework for software development across organisational boundaries
Toward a framework for software development across organisational boundaries
Since Agile software development has departed from traditional approaches like the Waterfall model, much research has been conducted on adopting Agile software development for different projects, either distributed or collocated projects. However, little research has discussed the organisational boundaries between developers who use an Agile software development approach and their customers. The purpose of this PhD is to introduce Agile software development to those organisations that develop software products for different distributed customers, and also to study the potential impact of the Agile development introduced across those organisational boundaries. We will conduct a case study in Saudi Arabia using interviews as a qualitative method for research. Evaluation of the results could lead to a framework for developing software across organisational boundaries. This would ultimately address and accommodate key factors in software development across organisational boundaries using an Agile development approach. This research will help project managers and developers as well as stakeholders and users to understand Agile software development and the impact of adopting an Agile approach across organisational and cultural boundaries in their projects.

Abstract

Since Agile software development has departed from traditional approaches like the Waterfall model, much research has been conducted on adopting Agile software development for different projects, either distributed or collocated projects. However, little research has discussed the organisational boundaries between developers who use an Agile software development approach and their customers. The purpose of this PhD is to introduce Agile software development to those organisations that develop software products for different distributed customers, and also to study the potential impact of the Agile development introduced across those organisational boundaries. We will conduct a case study in Saudi Arabia using interviews as a qualitative method for research. Evaluation of the results could lead to a framework for developing software across organisational boundaries. This would ultimately address and accommodate key factors in software development across organisational boundaries using an Agile development approach. This research will help project managers and developers as well as stakeholders and users to understand Agile software development and the impact of adopting an Agile approach across organisational and cultural boundaries in their projects.
