This booklet examines how and why collaborative caliber insurance concepts, rather pair programming and peer code assessment, have an effect on staff cognition and software program caliber in agile software program improvement groups. earlier examine on those very hot but in addition high priced options has desirous about remoted pairs of builders and missed the truth that they're in general utilized in higher, enduring groups. This publication is among the first experiences to enquire how those innovations rely on and impression the joint cognitive accomplishments of whole improvement groups instead of participants. It employs theories on transactive reminiscence structures and practical affordances to supply solutions in accordance with empirical examine. The mixed-methods learn offered comprises a number of in-depth case reports and survey effects from greater than 500 software program builders, workforce leaders, and product managers in eighty one software program improvement groups. The book’s findings will strengthen IS examine and feature particular implications for builders of code evaluation instruments, details structures improvement groups, and software program improvement managers.

2014, 2015). 1 of the appendix provides a brief overview of the small extant stream of literature on peer code review. Traditionally, software engineering research does not draw strongly on existing theory to explain or hypothesize empirical findings (Hannay et al. 2007). This is also reflected in research on pair programming and peer code review. , Gallis et al. 2003; Hannay et al. 2009). In the following, this study presents the results of prior work on pair programming and peer code review that are of relevance to its research questions.

Although acknowledging the need to study socio-technical effects and team level knowledge exchange (Bacchelli and Bird 2013), extant peer code review research in for-profit organizations does not focus on team level factors or include theory to inform such investigations. Nevertheless, literature suggests that peer code review may affect how teams can make use of their single members’ knowledge as they gain access to new knowledge about one another and their current doings (Bacchelli and Bird 2013).

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.
