Abstract (Swedish)
This study focus on finding how project usefulness is connected to the Agile software development process. In order to narrow the broad research area down we have decided to only focus on the most adopted methods within software development, Scrum. The research model consists of values, principles and a project process model describing how an Agile/Scrum project process ought to be together with project usefulness found in models and guidelines. Five interviews, within three different companies, were made in order to find out what their Scrum process looks like and to find project usefulness. Our findings was then discussed and analysed in comparison to the research model. A suggestion on what different features in the Scrum project... (More)
This study focus on finding how project usefulness is connected to the Agile software development process. In order to narrow the broad research area down we have decided to only focus on the most adopted methods within software development, Scrum. The research model consists of values, principles and a project process model describing how an Agile/Scrum project process ought to be together with project usefulness found in models and guidelines. Five interviews, within three different companies, were made in order to find out what their Scrum process looks like and to find project usefulness. Our findings was then discussed and analysed in comparison to the research model. A suggestion on what different features in the Scrum project process results in project usefulness is illustrated. The different features in a Scrum project process that results in the most project usefulness are: working with sprints and the daily Scrum. Daily Scrum result in more flexibility, a learning environment and more productivity. Working with sprints results in more flexibility, a closer customer relationship, a more customized product and more productivity. (Less)
