4 Research foci on agile software development in the IS Community in the influence of agile software development on specific teamwork factors and, in turn, the influence of these factors on the performance of agile teams. The following paragraphs provide an overview of the most influential publications for each category and summarize the main findings. Agility Concept Every good concept needs a strong underlying logic serving as a “theoretical glue” (Whetten 1989). In ISD research, however, it seems that “almost every piece of research adopts a unique interpretation of agility” (Abrahamsson et al.

6 Light-weight development methods proceeding agile software development: Adaptive Software Development (Highsmith 2000), Feature Driven Development (Palmer and Felsing 2002), Dynamic Systems Development Methods (Stapleton 1999), Scrum (Schwaber and Beedle 2002), Extreme Programming (XP) (Beck 2000), Lean Development (Poppendieck and Poppendieck 2007). 7 Fowler (2002) explained that both sides of these statements are valued, but agile software engineering prefers the first over the second. 16 2 Agile Software Development as an inherent part of software development as opposed to an unforeseeable contingency to be controlled through detailed upfront planning and compliance with strict processes (Dingsøyr et al.

In an experiment, they investigate reasons why and under which circumstances developers use pair programming. They find pair programmers to perform better than the second best programmer independent of the task complexity. Two developers, however, cannot exceed the performance of the best member working individually. In addition, the programmers show higher levels of confidence and satisfaction compared to the second best programmer, but not to the best programmer. Method Adaptation Other studies examine the adaptation of agile methods to specific work contexts or their combination with the traditional, plan-driven software development approach.
