Petteri Raety, Benjamin Behm, Kim-Karol Dikert, Maria Paasivaara, Casper Lassenius, Daniela Damian
2013 arXiv   pre-print
While global software development (GSD) projects face cultural and time differences, the biggest challenge is communication. We studied a distributed student project with an industrial customer.  ...  By comparing Scrum standup times and VCS activity we found that the live communication of standups activated people to work on the project.  ...  Without their consent to arrange standups late in the evening or early in the morning, organizing a distributed course using Scrum between sites located ten time zones apart would not have been possible  ...
