On the one hand there are meanwhile not many projects left that are made at home without outsourcing, off- or nearshoring. Thus, global software development seems to be a fact in state-of-th-eart software development. On the other hand more and more projects discover the success factor of agile software development not only since the Standish Group is recommending this approach. However, there are still a lot of people who believe agile software development is for small and collocated teams only. However, the agile value system and the principles as stated in the manifesto don’t argue about project size and distribution. Yet, agile software development requests –among other things– an emphasis on face-to-face communication, which seems to contradict with globally distributed environments. In this workshop, we will examine how to combine these two trends –agile and global– and which practices help and which hinder the success of such an undertaking. The following two questions are the focal point of the workshop:

  1. What are the possibilities to overcome the challenges global software development provides?
  2. What are the success factors for implementing an agile software development process within such constraints?


We're sorry but currently we don't have any available seats.
