Misaligned Values in Software Engineering Organizations [article]

Per Lenberg, Robert Feldt, Lars Göran Wallgren Tengberg
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The aligned companies were more effective, more satisfied, had higher trust, and fewer conflicts. Our efforts provide encouraging findings in a critical software engineering research area.  ...  Therefore, in this study, we examine how discrepancies in values between groups affect software companies' performance. To meet our objectives, we chose a mixed method research design.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We acknowledge the support of Swedish Armed Forces, Swedish Defense Materiel Administration and Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA) in the project number 2017-04874  ...

Myths and Over-Simplifications in Software Engineering

Magne Jørgensen
2013 Lecture Notes on Software Engineering  
Some of them may be harmless, but others may hamper evidence-based practices and contribute to a fashion-and myth-based software engineering discipline.  ...  In this article we give examples of software engineering myths and over-simplifications and discuss how they are created and spread.  ...  The evidence to support the claim of 189% cost overrun is based on a survey of projects from as many as 365 software companies.  ...

Engineering Privacy by Design: Are engineers ready to live up to the challenge? [article]

Kathrin Bednar, Sarah Spiekermann, Marc Langheinrich
2020 arXiv   pre-print
On the implementation level, incorporation of privacy protections in products and services depends on the commitment of the engineers who design them.  ...  While we increasingly call on engineers to go beyond functional requirements and be responsive to human values in our increasingly technological society, we may be facing the dilemma of asking engineers  ...  This gap in research calls for a comprehensive study of systems engineers' privacy related attitudes and engineering practices, which we are presenting in this article.  ...
