Information Flow within a Dispersed Agile Team: A Distributed Cognition Perspective [chapter]

Helen Sharp, Rosalba Giuffrida, Grigori Melnik
2012 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
One of the hallmarks of a co-located agile team is the simple and open flow of information between its members.  ...  Using a distributed cognition analysis which focuses on information propagation and transformation within the team we investigate how the team collaborates and compare our findings with those from co-located  ...  We'd like to thank the team members for their support.  ...

Global Agile Team Design: An Informing Science Perspective

Jason H. Sharp, Sherry D. Ryan, Victor R. Prybutok
2014 Informing Science  
As software development becomes increasingly globally distributed, a potential challenge for organizations using agile methodologies is the design of their development teams.  ...  Using a case study approach, Cohen's updated model of the Informing Science framework served as a means for framing the discussion of global agile team design related to the components of task, environmental  ...  For example, what are the human-related issues that influence the transmission of information between the informer and client within a global agile team?  ...

Development of a team measure for tacit knowledge in software development teams

Sharon Ryan, Rory V. O'Connor
2009 Journal of Systems and Software  
Through a series of three empirical studies we developed and validated the Team Tacit Knowledge Measure (TTKM) for software developers.  ...  In Study 2, supplied repertory grids were administered to novices and experts to establish differential items, and Study 3 validated the TTKM on a sample of 48 industrial software development teams.  ...  A strength of this method is that it compares the responses within a team without including any information from the other teams.  ...

Teams in a New Era: Some Considerations and Implications

Lauren E. Benishek, Elizabeth H. Lazzara
2019 Frontiers in Psychology  
These advances have heralded a new era for teams and teamwork in which previous teams research and practice may not be fully appropriate for meeting current requirements and demands.  ...  Teams have been a ubiquitous structure for conducting work and business for most of human history. However, today's organizations are markedly different than those of previous generations.  ...  Fluidity, overlap, and dispersion affects boundedness between the team and the outside context, but it also affects boundaries within the team and the tasks.  ...
