Getting agile methods to work in global software development is a potentially rewarding but challenging task. Agile methods are relatively young and still maturing. The application to globally distributed projects is in its early stages. Various guidelines on how to apply and sometimes adapt agile methods have been proposed. However, systematic literature reviews reveal that detailed evaluative studies are scarce and limited to small and medium sized projects. This study presents a framework… 
A systematic review of distributed Agile software engineering
TLDR
The objectives of this work are to investigate and find out the most important risks that threaten a DASE approach and what mitigation strategies exist to address them.
Adaptation of Agile Practices: A Systematic Review and Survey
Context. Due to the uniqueness of software projects there is no single Agile development approach that ideally fits all project contexts. Each software project is unique, whether in its subject area,
Agile Global Software Development: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
A systematic literature review of the ASD and GSD literature provided 48 distinct practices that organizations can implement that go some way towards providing solutions to manage GSD teams, and thus to embrace agility.
Agile Development Overcomes GSD Challenges: A Systematic Literature Review
This paper aims to discover several Global Software Development (GSD) challenges existing in the literature and review several agile practices available to mitigate those challenges with special
Using Agile Practices to Solve Global Software Development Problems -- A Case Study
TLDR
It is hypothesized that many GSD problems can be solved by organisations taking an agile approach to their development, and a case study with a GSD company, currently using a plan driven approach to development, uncovered many problems.
Problems in Agile Global Software Engineering Projects especially within Traditionally Organised Corporations: [An exploratory semi-structured interview study]
TLDR
The main objective of this exploratory semi-structured interview study is to phrase out the occurring problems of this mixture of traditional company organisation as well as project organisation and agile concepts, especially when agile methods are applied within traditionally organised corporations.
Does the “Project Manager” Still Exist in Agile Software Development Projects?
TLDR
An online survey was posted out to agile special interest groups on popular social media platforms to discover the frequency of the job title "project manager" in agile projects and found there is an inverse correlation between the co-location of a team and presence of project manager.
Fit for Continuous Integration: How Organizations Assimilate an Agile Practice
TLDR
It is argued that as organizations transform through the assimilation stages, ambiguity increases, forcing them to think in alternatives and take tradeoffs, and to add an in-depth study of a distinct agile practice.
Software Project Management in a Changing World
TLDR
Software Project Management in a Changing World focuses on how people and organizations can make their processes more change-adaptive and presents some of the latest methods and techniques to accommodate new challenges facing the discipline.

Could Global Software Development Benefit from Agile Methods?
TLDR
Potential benefits and challenges of adopting agile methods in global software development are discussed and plans for research in companies using agility methods in their distributed projects are presented.
New directions on agile methods: a comparative analysis
TLDR
The results show that agile software development methods, without rationalization, cover certain/different phases of the software development life-cycle and most of them do not offer adequate support for project management.
Using Scrum in Distributed Agile Development: A Multiple Case Study
TLDR
Findings from a multiple case study on agile practices in two small and one mid-sized distributed Scrum project are presented, which describe how Scrum practices, such as daily scrums, backlogs, and sprints were successfully adopted to distributed development.
Agile Practices in Global Software Engineering - A Systematic Map

  • 2010
TLDR
The analysis revealed that in most cases agile practices were modified with respect to the context and situational requirements, indicating the need for future research on how to integrate all experiences and practices in a way to assist practitioners when setting up non-collocated agile projects.
Risk Identification and Mitigation Processes for Using Scrum in Global Software Development: A Conceptual Framework
TLDR
This research identifies key challenges, due to global project distribution, that restrict the use of Scrum and explores the strategies used by project managers to deal with these challenges.
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.
How Technological Support Can Enable Advantages of Agile Software Development in a GSE Setting
Because of the distance between the dispersed development locations, Global Software Engineering (GSE) is confronted with challenges regarding communication, coordination and control of the
Assumptions Underlying Agile Software-Development Processes
TLDR
The principles and advocated practices of agile processes are examined and limitations that may arise from these assumptions are identified and how the limitations can be addressed by incorporating other software-development techniques and practices into agile development environments are outlined.
Customising agile methods to software practices at Intel Shannon
TLDR
The study refutes the suggestion that agile methods are not divisible or individually selectable but achieve their benefits through the synergistic combination of individual agile practices and shows that an a la carte selection and tailoring of practices can work very well.
Agile software development with Scrum
TLDR
The thesis describes the importance and characteristics of agile methodologies for software development, focusing on the currently most widely used methodology - Scrum, and presents the most widely spread user stories estimation techniques.
