Abstract [sv]

Den här boken handlar om systemutveckling. Den handlar inte om programmering utan i stället om allt annat som du behöver veta om du vill arbeta med systemutveckling, exempelvis utvecklingsmetodik, projektledning, processorienterat arbetssätt,testverksamhet, säkerhet och att få system att bli robusta,driftsäkra och enkla att förvalta.

Det är en bok för både programmerare som arbetar i utvecklarteam eller projektgrupper och för produktägare, testledare eller projektledare som arbetar med mjukvara. Kort sagt, alla typer av roller som berörs av systemutveckling.

Boken är lämplig för undervisning i kurser för systemutvecklare,processutvecklare, kravanalytiker, testledare eller projektledare och är även ett användbart verktyg för den yrkesverksamme som vill få en helhetsbild.

Abstract [en]

The benefits of agile ways of working in small teams have inspired larger organizations to implement large-scale agile frameworks. To manage dependencies between teams, there is a need for routines to plan and divide work between teams as well as routines to manage emerging dependency issues. These routines are often changed over time, but how tailoring is performed is not much studied. This study aims to fill that gap by presenting the tailoring of a planned coordination routine in three organizations over a period of one and a half year. By visiting planning sessions, 379 h of observation data were collected. Investigating details of this routine gives a much more dynamic view, compared to the static description presented in the framework. Different logics for tailoring could be seen in the three cases. For deciding on a cadence for the planning period, three diverse logics were used as the basis for the decisions: knowledge, time, and resources.

Abstract [en]

Forming autonomous, self-organizing, cross-functional teams in software development is becoming more common even in larger organizations, and many organizations are implementing the Scaled Agile Framework. When autonomous teams need to work together, they must sacrifice some level of autonomy since work needs to be coordinated with other teams, which could be a threat to team performance. This study presents how perceived autonomy has changed by listening to the voices from the teams in three large organizations. Although several respondents did not express any experienced changes to autonomy at all, others put forth important changes. The practices where several teams gather in joint events are important arenas in both positive and negative aspects. The arenas give teams a better overview and a sense of being empowered in using their veto right to stop overload of planned work. However, more detailed planning in every single team could cause less ability to switch work between teams and a sense of suffocation due to detailed routines and practices.

Abstract [en]

Agile ways of working are nowadays used in many software development departments even in larger organizations. When scaling up agile ways of working, new practices for coordinating teams become necessary. Instead of inventing practices on their own, many organizations are implementing the Scaled Agile Framework but the impacts on team performance due to these practices are not much studied. Data was obtained by means of a survey questionnaire that was answered by 111 team members from two organizations, one from the automotive industry and one of the major Swedish banks. The study suggests that efficient inter-team coordination does not have a positive relationship to team performance. But, as shown in several other contexts, a high level of psychological safety has a significant positive impact on team performance in a large-scale agile software development setting. © 2018 CEUR-WS.

Abstract [en]

Scrum and eXtreme programming, the first agile development frameworks, were designed with very few advice on coordination for work in larger scale were several teams cooperate toward a common goal. This lead to both wrong assumptions regarding the usefulness of agile ways of working in larger organizations as well as much individual tailoring with coordination practices in organizations. Now, the Scaled Agile Framework is gaining much attention in software development. This study contains an analysis of inter-team coordination practices prescribed in the framework and how they have been implemented in three organizations. Previous research on coordination has been criticized for having a static view on coordination with not enough focus on how to manage emerging dependency issues. The result of this study shows that the Scaled Agile Framework have four practices that cover both planning and emerging issues and three practices solely aimed at managing these emerging dependency issues.

Abstract [en]

Inter-team coordination has been recognized as one of the most important challenges in large-scale agile development settings. Except specific practices, such asScrum of Scrums meetings, certain roles are oftenreported to be responsible for areas of coordination incase studies. Although agile values state thatcoordination should be dealt with face-to-face byindividuals, two commonly used prescriptive frameworksfor large-scale agile development suggests contrastingways of coordinating regarding roles and theirresponsibilities. One propose additional coordinating roles leaving less mandate and autonomy to the single team while the other propose no additional roles, compared to the original roles of Scrum, allowing more autonomy to the teams. This literature review is an analysis of roles assigned with the responsibility for inter-team coordination in 42 case studies of large-scale agile development settings. The review shows that only four of the analyzed organizations appoints roles according to the large-scale agile frameworks. Rather, a wide range of different additional roles with different role tailoring is displayed where the majority is focusing on vertical coordination rather than horizontal coordination. In three of the cases, the role setup has specificallytargeted coordination for architectural issues. The study shows that the prescriptive frameworks are seen as toolboxes leaving the responsibility for tailoring to the single organization. This implies a stronger need for theoretical support on what to use as basis for tailoring of roles and their responsibilities.

Abstract [en]

In the last fifteen years we have witnessed a vast spread of new methods for managing projects within software development. In 2001, the Agile Manifesto stated the common values and principles of these methods, all aimed at producing better software. Several of these values and principals are specifically expressed for designing and programming software products. Since then, the benefits of these methods have led to a widespread use of agile project management even in non-software development contexts. But, how does these values and principals affect projects in non-software areas since some values and principals are not applicable? Do they perceive the same benefits? This paper presents a systematic literature review aimed at identifying benefits in projects adopting agile methods in non-software development contexts. Out of the 21 case studies analysed, most reported projects were from manufacturing companies but even from areas such as library management and strategy management. The most frequently reported benefits were related to team work, customer interaction, productivity and flexibility. The main parts of the benefits were corresponding to the first value in the Agile Manifesto: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
