Enabling Good Work Habits in Software Developers through Reflective Goal-Setting

André Meyer, Gail C Murphy, Thomas Zimmermann, Thomas Fritz
In our study, 52 professional software developers self-reflected about their work on a daily basis during two to three weeks, which resulted in a rich set of work habit goals and actionable strategies  ...  We therefore designed a reflective goal-setting study to learn more about developers' goals and strategies to improve or maintain good habits at work.  ...  Overall, we conclude that continuous reflective goal-setting can enable developers to improve and maintain good work habits.  ...
