Boundary objects in Agile practices

Rebekka Wohlrab, Patrizio Pelliccione, Eric Knauss, Mats Larsson
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 International Conference on Software and System Process - ICSSP '18  
The adoption of agile methods impacts not only the way individuals collaborate, but also the management of artifacts like requirements, test cases, safety documentation, and models.  ...  While practitioners aim to reduce unnecessary documentation, there is a lack of guidance for automotive companies with respect to what artifacts are needed and how to manage them.  ...  was partially supported by the Next Generation Electrical Architecture (NGEA) and NGEA step 2 projects by VINNOVA FFI (2014-05599 and 2015-04881), the Software Center Project 27 on RE for Large-Scale Agile  ...

Using Agile Project Management in the Design and Implementation of Activity-Based Costing Systems

Victor Jiménez, Paulo Afonso, Gabriela Fernandes
2020 Sustainability  
A Design Science Research approach was followed to apply an agile project management approach—the Scrum methodology—to the design and implementation of an Activity-Based Costing (ABC) system in a hospital  ...  The involvement of all stakeholders from the early stages of design and implementation plays a critical role in this process.  ...  Organizations need efficient and effective costing systems for supporting decision-making; using an agile project management approach, defined here as an approach able to develop a solution to a problem  ...

A Solution in Search of a Problem: A Method for the Development of Blockchain Use Cases

Gilbert Fridgen, Jannik Lockl, Sven Radszuwill, Alexander Rieger, André Schweizer, Nils Urbach
2018 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
We addressed this research gap by applying an action design research approach and situational method engineering to propose a method for the development of blockchain use cases.  ...  Researchers and practitioners, however, still lack a technology-driven, systematic approach to understand the potential of blockchain and to develop convincing use cases.  ...  Thus, before the development team starts in an agile manner (e.g., Scrum), our results suggest to first model and analyze the process underlying the blockchain solution, and decide on a prototype case.  ...

Agile Implementation and Expansive Learning: Identifying Contradictions and Their Resolution Using an Activity Theory Perspective [chapter]

Pritam Chita, Peter Cruickshank, Colin Smith, Kendall Richards
2020 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In order to address such factors, this study applies a modified Activity Theory (AT) based framework to a case study agile implementation within a large public sector organisation.  ...  An activity is closely defined, and six generic activities associated with all agile implementations are identified.  ...  From a learning perspective, Activity Theory helps to focus on the important influence of the environmental mix such as culture, procedures, roles, peers, policies and artifacts.  ...

Rebekka Wohlrab, Eric Knauss, Jan-Philipp Steghöfer, Salome Maro, Anthony Anjorin, Patrizio Pelliccione
2018 Requirements Engineering  
In practice, the use and maintenance of trace links are challenging as artifacts undergo constant change, and development takes place in distributed scenarios with multiple collaborating stakeholders.  ...  The study reported in this paper aims to close this gap by investigating the relation of collaboration and traceability management, based on an understanding of characteristics of the development effort  ...  Different types of artifacts can be distinguished, e.g., a requirement, an element in a model, a line of code, an issue in a bug tracking system, or the result of a test case.  ...

Regina Hebig, Reda Bendraou, Markus Völter, Michel R. V. Chaudron
2014 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems  
For example, the need to adapt a process when introducing MDD can be a reason to decide against an MDD adoption. Further, we aim to give an introduction to foundations and research perspectives.  ...  The workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange experiences on the questions how processes need to adapt or can be adapted when model-driven techniques are applied.  ...  We hope that the workshop will help researchers and practitioners to build up a community that shares data and experience.  ...
