Tool Support for Inter-team Learning in Agile Software Organizations [chapter]

Thomas Chau, Frank Maurer
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In contrast, the Communities of Practice approach relies more on tacit knowledge and selforganization.  ...  To bridge the gap between these two conflicting approaches, this paper proposes a suite of lightweight knowledge sharing tools by which software organizations are given the flexibility to control how structured  ...  roles, such as a group of knowledge brokers or, in the case of an agile organization, a group of Scrum Masters [11] .  ...

Working software over comprehensive documentation – Rationales of agile teams for artefacts usage

Gerard Wagenaar, Sietse Overbeek, Garm Lucassen, Sjaak Brinkkemper, Kurt Schneider
2018 Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development  
Agile software development (ASD) promotes working software over comprehensive documentation. Still, recent research has shown agile teams to use quite a number of artefacts.  ...  We start off to explore those rationales, and state our primary research question as: What are rationales for agile teams to use artefacts? Our research method was a multiple case study.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors express their gratitude to the graduate students who participated in the research group as component of their course 'Software Product Management' as well as to the organizations  ...
