Comparative Analysis of Job Satisfaction in Agile and Non-agile Software Development Teams [chapter]

Grigori Melnik, Frank Maurer
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The study investigates if and how job satisfaction relates to development processes that are being used and the determinants of job satisfaction across a wide range of teams, regions and employees.  ...  The evidence suggests that there are twice as many members of agile teams who are satisfied with their jobs (vs members of non-agile teams).  ...  Harold Stolovitch and Dr. Steven Condly for discussions on the myth of "happy teams = productive teams", Dr.  ...

Toward an Understanding of Job Satisfaction on Agile Teams: Agile Development as Work Redesign

John F. Tripp, Cynthia K. Riemenschneider
2014 2014 47th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
In this study, we use the lens of Hackman & Oldham's job characteristics model to motivate a theory of motivation and satisfaction amongst agile development teams.  ...  We propose that agile teams are, in fact, redesigning work in the very way that Hackman & Oldham propose will increase job perceptions, and lead to greater job satisfaction.  ...  Respondents were screened to ensure that they were part of a software development team, and played a non-management, non-customer role on the team.  ...

How a 4-day Work Week affects Agile Software Development Teams [article]

Julia Topp, Jan Hendrik Hille, Michael Neumann, David Mötefindt
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Context: Agile software development (ASD) sets social aspects like communication and collaboration in focus.  ...  Although the stress level of the ASD team member increased due to the 4-day work week, we found that the job satisfaction of the individual ASD team members is affected positively.  ...  Do the 4-day work week and remote work affect the job satisfaction and stress level of agile software development team members?  ...

Work Motivational Challenges Regarding the Interface between Agile Teams and a Non-Agile Surrounding Organization: A Case Study

Lucas Gren, Richard Torkar, Robert Feldt
2014 2014 Agile Conference  
There are studies showing what happens if agile teams are introduced into a non-agile organization, e.g. higher overhead costs and the necessity of an understanding of agile methods even outside the teams  ...  This study concludes that there were work motivational affects of fitting an agile team into a non-agile surrounding organization, and therefore this might also be true for other organizations.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We would like to thank Pasi Moisander, Karin Scholes, and Kristin Boissonneau Gren (without your goodwill this work could not have been done).  ...

Are Daily Stand-up Meetings Valuable? A Survey of Developers in Software Teams [chapter]

Viktoria Stray, Nils Brede Moe, Gunnar R. Bergersen
2017 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
Junior developers were most positive and senior developers and members of large teams most negative. We argue that the value of the practice should be evaluated according to the team needs.  ...  Further, more work is needed to understand why senior developers do not perceive the meetings as valuable and how to apply the practice successfully in large teams.  ...  We are grateful to the survey respondents and to the reviewers. This work was supported by the Smiglo project, which is partly funded by the Research Council of Norway under the grant 235359/O30.  ...
