Article
Full-text available
Organizations developing safety-critical software are increasingly seeking to create better practices by meshing agile and plan-driven development processes. Significant differences between the agile and the plan-driven processes make meshing difficult, and very little empirical evidence on using agile processes for safety-critical software develop...
Article
Full-text available
Context: Safety-critical software systems are increasingly being used in new application areas, such as personal medical devices, traffic control, and detection of pathogens. A current research debate is regarding whether safety-critical systems are better developed with traditional waterfall processes or agile processes that are purportedly faster...
Article
Agile software practices are widely used in a great variety of organizations, and the shift from traditional plan-driven approaches entails a redefinition of processes in these organizations. Intrafirm knowledge transfer of agile software practices between projects is a key concern in this redefinition. While knowledge transfer is essential for an...
Conference Paper
This short paper reports from a case study of the agile development of safety-critical software. It utilizes a framework of dynamic relationships between agile practices with the purpose of demonstrating the utility of the framework to understand a case in its context, and it shows significant dynamics. The study is concluded by pointing at which f...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Increased complexity in projects has forced new project management initiatives. In software development several agile methods have emerged and are today highly implemented in practice. Observations of general project management practice show how it has been inspired by agile software development, but very little research addresses the issue of agil...
Article
Full-text available
Agile methods are widely used and successful in many development situations and beginning to attract attention amongst the software maintenance community – both researchers and practitioners. However, it should not be assumed that implementing a well-known agile method for a maintenance department is therefore a trivial endeavour - the maintenance...
Article
Full-text available
E-Government strategies, investments, project selection, and implementations are influenced by value positions deeply enshrined in the traditions of public administration, which are in turn reflected in the everyday discourse of public managers. We analyse value traditions in the public administration literature and their adaptation for e-Governmen...
Article
Public sector managers take much of the responsibility for selecting, commissioning, implementing and realising benefits from information technology (IT) projects. However, e-Government initiatives often suffer from complexity, vision failure, lack of goal clarity and insufficient commitment. These problems may stem from value traditions that are d...
Article
The agile and the documentation-driven software methods advocate two different ways of developing software; but research does show some compatibility between these. Practitioners have an increasing desire to adopt agile software development methods while still being compliant with a quality assurance standard. However, due to little empirical resea...
Conference Paper
Agile methods are becoming increasingly popular in software development; even by organizations complying with quality standards. The literature reports on scattered examples of organizations that have succeeded in meshing agile and documentation-driven methods. However, due to a lack of empirical research, it is not well understood how to implement...
Conference Paper
Agile practices to systems development are believed to depend largely on the developers’ competences, experience and knowledge and to a lesser degree on formal development processes and methods. In this paper we investigate the knowledge transfer and barriers to the transfer of agile development practices in an interpretive case study. The case com...
Article
Offhand, the agile and the disciplined software development approaches seem contradicting. More and more, software development organizations however strive at implementing an agile software development approach while still being compliant to a quality assurance standard. Researchers are discussing the combinability and compatibility of these two ap...
Chapter
Quality assurance technology is a formal control mechanism aiming at increasing the quality of the product exchanged between vendors and customers. Studies of the adoption of this technology in the field of system development rarely focus on the role of the relationship between the customer and vendor in the process. We have studied how the process...
Article
It is generally assumed among software developers and managers that a document-driven development process is incompatible with an agile development process. There are few reports on this issue and even less empirical research documenting the assumed incompatibility. More and more software companies however have a desire to adopt agile development p...
Article
Quality Assurance is a popular subject today, but I find the existing literature insufficient to explain which consequences, it has on the customer-vendor relationship. This case study is to achieve an increased understanding of this topic. The case study suggests that the implementation of quality assurance has an impact on the relationship betwee...

We want to establish particular ways of evaluating agile software development yet without measuring against a fixed model such as the CMM.
