Empirical studies of agile software development: A scientific review ˚ Tore Dyba *, Torgeir Dingsøyr

Subjective Agile computer software development signifies a major leaving from traditional, plan-based approaches to software anatomist. A systematic review of empirical studies of snello software creation up to and including 2005 was conducted. The search strategy identified 1996 studies, of which 36 were identified as scientific studies. The studies had been grouped into four themes: introduction and adoption, human and sociable factors, awareness on acuto methods, and comparative studies. The review investigates precisely what is currently regarded about the benefits and limitations of, and the strength of evidence for, souple methods. Effects for exploration and practice are shown. The main implication for research is a need for further and better empirical studies of acuto software advancement within a common research plan. For the industrial readership, the review supplies a map of findings, according to subject, that can be compared for relevance to their individual settings and situations. Ó 2008 Elsevier B. V.
