Collaborative Quality Assurance in Information Systems by Kai Spohrer

By Kai Spohrer

This e-book examines how and why collaborative caliber coverage strategies, quite pair programming and peer code overview, impact workforce cognition and software program caliber in agile software program improvement groups. past examine on those highly regarded but additionally expensive concepts has fascinated with remoted pairs of builders and overlooked the truth that they're commonly utilized in better, enduring groups. This ebook is among the first reviews to enquire how those suggestions depend upon and impression the joint cognitive accomplishments of complete improvement groups instead of contributors. It employs theories on transactive reminiscence structures and practical affordances to supply solutions in response to empirical study. The mixed-methods examine awarded comprises a number of in-depth case reviews and survey effects from greater than 500 software program builders, staff leaders, and product managers in eighty one software program improvement groups. The book’s findings will develop IS examine and feature specific implications for builders of code assessment instruments, details structures improvement groups, and software program improvement managers.

2008) emphasize on the finding that teams need to balance knowledge sharing, which is easier achieved through pair programming, and adherence to time constraints, which is easier achieved through solo programming. On the one hand, findings of Plonka and van der Linden (2012) support these claims by showing that individual developers can become discouraged from pair programming by time pressure. On the other hand, their findings question whether knowledge sharing may generally be facilitated by pair programming because they show there can be “no pairing opportunities due to a special field of expertise” (Plonka and van der Linden 2012, p.

Consequently, agile ISD teams need to take care of assuring the quality of the source code produced by their single members. On the one hand, this may be done based on technical solutions such as extensive test suits, adequate testing processes, and supportive technology (Beck 2000; Hildenbrand 2008). On the other hand, teams may rely on techniques based more on human interaction and collaboration such as pair programming and peer code review. In fact, pair programming is one of the most prominent techniques in agile software development literature and is part of a bundle of techniques in the most popular development method Extreme Programming (Beck 2000; Dingsøyr et al.

A combination of several ISD techniques is then called a method. The authors highlight that techniques may involve the use of information technology (IT) artifacts such as software, that have often been developed for a specific technique (Avison and Fitzgerald 2006, p. 21). Less broadly than this definition of an ISD technique, Mingers (2001) defines what constitutes a technique in research. As such, research techniques, for example the analysis of a survey, are seen as basic research activities that “are generally well-defined sequences of operations that if carried out proficiently yield predictable results” (Mingers 2001, p.
