Artefacts and agile method tailoring in large-scale offshore software development programmes

Julian M. Bass
2016 Information and Software Technology  
Conclusion: The development programmes in this study create agile and planbased artefacts to improve compliance with enterprise quality standards and technology strategies, whilst also mitigating risk  ...  Objective: This study aims to increase understanding of how development processes are tailored to meet the needs of large-scale offshore software development programmes, by focusing on artefact inventories  ...  The artefacts used confirm that the teams have adopted elements of agile culture, and use agile process ceremonies such as daily review (scrum) meetings, collaborative work estimations and empirical measures  ...

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 introduce five rationales underlying the usage of artefacts in ASD: (1) Adoption of ASD leads to agile artefacts, (2) teaminternal communication leads to functional and technical design artefacts, (  ...  An overview of artefacts from the FLOW models as wells as their description and their rationales is available.  ...

The Agile Artifact - an Antifragile Approach to Design and Innovation

Jan Eckert
2017 Universal Journal of Management  
As a conclusion, the concept of the Agile artefact is introduced.  ...  In this paper, two hypotheses introduce into the question whether incompleteness as an approach to designing artefacts might lead to a better involvement of the artefact's future users and act as a trigger  ...  Other than common open or iterative design (and innovation) approaches, the Agile Artifact doesn't focus the design process, but promotes an agile outcome instead.  ...

Towards a Framework for Shared Understanding and Shared Commitment in Agile Distributed ISD Project Teams

Stephen McCarthy, Paidi O'Raghallaigh, Ciara Fitzgerald, Frédéric Adam
2019 European Conference on Information Systems  
In this paper, we seek to develop a framework for investigating the interplay of factors that shape shared understanding and shared commitment during agile distributed ISD project team interactions.  ...  Agile distributed Information Systems Development (ISD) is an innately social process in which distributed team members must continuously interact to develop new IT solutions.  ...  In particular, these workshops aimed to foster constructive conflict through the use of designed artefacts for overcoming disciplinary boundaries.  ...

Waqar Hussain, Mojtaba Shahin, Rashina Hoda, Jon Whittle, Harsha Perera, Arif Nurwidyantoro, Rifat Ara Shams, Gillian Oliver
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We elaborate how some current Agile artefacts (e.g., user story), roles (e.g., product owner), ceremonies (e.g., stand-up meeting), and practices (e.g., business-facing testing) in SAFe can be modified  ...  We present five high-level empirically-justified sets of interventions in SAFe: artefacts, roles, ceremonies, practices, and culture.  ...  Broadly speaking, Agile development is characterised by four core values [12] : "individuals and interactions over process and tools, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, working software  ...
