The studies are selected from all articles published in nine premium journals that regularly publish scholarly research on IT use: MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Organization Science, Management Science, Administrative Science Quarterly, Decision Sciences, Journal of Management Information Systems, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management,(More)
We often hear that global software engineering teams are affected by time differences. While there is considerable research on the difficulties of distance, culture and other dimensions, there has been little research that isolated the impact of just time differences. The research question that guides us is whether there are gradual differences across time(More)
As excessive budget and schedule compression becomes the norm in today's software industry, an understanding of its impact on software development performance is crucial for effective management strategies. Previous software engineering research has implied a nonlinear impact of schedule pressure on software development outcomes. Borrowing insights from(More)
Modern workplaces often bring together virtual teams where some members are collocated, and some participate remotely. We are using a simulation game to study collaborations of 10-person groups, with five collocated members and five isolates (simulated 'telecommuters'). Individual players in this game buy and sell 'shapes' from each other in order to form(More)
Under what circumstances might a group member be better off as a long-distance participant rather than collocated? We ran a set of experiments to study how partially-distributed groups collaborate when skill sets are unequally distributed. Partially distributed groups are those where some collaborators work together in the same space (collocated) and some(More)
This paper describes an automatic system for routing the metal connections on integrated circuit chips. The system contains three major sections: global wiring, vertical channel assignment, and horizontal bilateral channel allocation. Since its initial development in 1972, this system has been used successfully at IBM in the physical design of bipolar logic(More)
In studies of virtual teams, it is difficult to determine pure effects of geographic isolation and uneven communication technology. We developed a multi-agent computer model in NetLogo to complement laboratory-based organizational simulations [3]. In the lab, favoritism among collocated team members (collocators) appeared to increase their performance.(More)
