I am a PhD candidate at Blekinge Institute ofTechnology studying Agile methodologies, in particular investigating under which circumstances Agile is efficient.
My licentiate seminar was held on 2012-05-30 summarizing the research on efficient software development through Agile methods. The major contribution is the Agility assessment tool to benchmark/profile Agility in a software development team/organization.
In late 2013, I conducted an online survey to collect input from Agile practitioners aiming at understanding whether Agile helps to achieve product goals or to mitigate challenges of distributed software development. The survey data is synthesized and I'm writing the papers which are planned to be in the PhD dissertation.
