Job Satisfaction in Agile Development Teams: Agile Development as Work Redesign

John Tripp, Cindy Rienemschneider, Jason Thatcher
2016 Journal of the AIS  
Agile software-development advocates claim that an important value proposition of agile methods is that they make people more motivated and satisfied with their jobs.  ...  While several studies present anecdotal evidence that agile methods increase motivation and satisfaction, research has not theoretically explained or empirically examined how agile development practices  ...  For example, agile methods open feedback channels through acceptance tests that client representatives or product owners write 5 (Matook & Maruping, 2014) .  ...
