Identifying relevant studies in software engineering
TLDR
The main objective of the research reported in this paper is to improve the search step of undertaking SLRs in software engineering (SE) by devising and evaluating systematic and practical approaches to identifying relevant studies in SE by incorporating the concept of 'quasi-gold standard' (QGS).

Using Scrum in Global Software Development: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
A systematic literature review of the primary studies that report using Scrum practices in GSD projects to identify various challenges and strategies available to deal with them is presented. Expand
A systematic review of evaluation of variability management approaches in software product lines
TLDR
It is found that a large majority of the reported VM approaches in SPLE have not been sufficiently evaluated using scientifically rigorous methods, and further investigations need to pay more attention to the contexts under which different approaches can be more beneficial. Expand
A framework for classifying and comparing software architecture evaluation methods
TLDR
This work presents a set of commonly known but informally described features of an evaluation method and organizes them within a framework that should offer guidance on the choice of the most appropriate method for an evaluation exercise. Expand
Agility and Architecture: Can They Coexist?
TLDR
This article talks about software architecture being relevant to the basis of aspects such as communication among team members, inputs to subsequent design decisions, documenting design assumptions, and evaluating design alternatives. Expand
Variability management in software product lines: a systematic review
TLDR
A systematic literature review of papers reporting VM in Software Product Line reveals the chronological backgrounds of various approaches over the history of VM research, and summarizes the key issues that drove the evolution of different approaches. Expand
A survey of architecture design rationale
TLDR
It is found that practitioners recognize the importance of documenting design rationale and frequently use them to reason about their design choices, however, they have indicated barriers to the use and documentation of design rationale. Expand
Establishing and maintaining trust in software outsourcing relationships: An empirical investigation
TLDR
Vietnamese and Indian software development practitioners' perceptions of the role of trust in managing client-vendor relationships and the factors that are critical to trust in off-shore software outsourcing relationships are understood. Expand
Software quality and agile methods
TLDR
The waterfall model is compared with agile processes to show how agile methods achieve software quality under time pressure and in an unstable requirements environment to answer the question "can agile methods ensure quality even though they develop software faster and can handle unstable requirements?". Expand
Software Process Improvement barriers: A cross-cultural comparison
TLDR
An in-depth understanding of barriers that can undermine SPI, in the context of Global Software Development, from the perspective of software development practitioners is gained to enable SPI managers to better manage SPI initiatives. Expand
