Team Learning in Information Systems Development - a literature Review

  title={Team Learning in Information Systems Development - a literature Review},
  author={Kai Spohrer and Behnaz Gholami and Armin Heinzl},
  booktitle={European Conference on Information Systems},
Information Systems Development (ISD) is fast moving, knowledge-intensive and requires a substantive amount of teamwork. In order to develop quality software, teams need to leverage the skills and knowledge of each team member. ISD teams who engage in learning at a group level can perform more effectively and efficiently. However, relative to other disciplines, knowledge and literature about team learning in ISD research is new and dispersed. This fact hampers the cumulative progress in…

Group Learning and Performance in a Large-scale Software Project : Results and Lessons Learned

The results suggest that some teams improved their performance over time until they were forced to work cooperate with several other teams, however, it is not completely clear role of accumulated experience and other aspects, such as team stability and number of developers.

A unified knowledge sharing framework to facilitate knowledge management in global software engineering environment is presented and aims to mitigate the shortcomings of knowledge sharing tools and dispersed availability of knowledgesharing media by providing communication, collaboration, organizational memory and project management aspects on one platform.


This study highlights that a combination of distinct development, operations, and management skills is necessary to successfully work within a DevOps team and explains core DevOps skill categories.

Leading Agile Self-Organizing Teams : A Collective Learning Perspective

Agile Software Development (ASD) puts a higher emphasis on people as well as social interactions, which require a higher degree of human communication and learning. Selforganizing ASD teams are

Peer-Based Quality Assurance in Information Systems Development: A Transactive Memory Perspective

This study replies to recent calls to study socio-cognitive implications of software development techniques by being among the first to empirically study effects that go beyond error correction.

The Impact of Peer-Based Software Reviews on Team Performance: The Role of Feedback and Transactive Memory Systems

A theoretical model is developed which links pair programming and peer code review to different forms of feedback and suggests different feedback mechanisms are suggested to influence team performance directly through improved code quality, but also indirectly by strengthening teams’ transactive memory systems.

Co-Creating Value - the Dyadic CDO-CIO Relationship during the Digital Transformation

This study investigates how aspects such as a shared understanding regarding the digital transformation of their firms and the existence of a transactive memory system (TMS) influence the CDO-CIO dyad.

Discussion of Findings

So far, results from three distinct but interconnected research phases of this study have been presented. This chapter briefly reiterates the purpose of this study and integrates the distinct phases’

Developing Intellectual Capital within Agile IT Teams: a literature Review

This study conducted a structured literature review to identify the current state of knowledge about agile IT teams and how they develop ambidextrous organizational learning to respond to rapid changes, and built the concept of technological capi-tal and arranged these capabilities.



Freedom to Cooperate: Gaining Clarity Into Knowledge Integration in Information Systems Development Teams

It is suggested that autonomous teams engage more frequently in cooperative learning behaviors, and consequently perform more effectively and are more satisfied, and that relationships exist between the type of autonomy present in teams and the resultant elements of cooperative learning and work outcomes.

Expertise Integration and Creativity in Information Systems Development

It is shown that the compositional and relational attributes of ISD project teams--diverse specialized knowledge in a team, the quality of intrateam working relationships, and members' cross-domain absorptive capacity--do not engender creativity by themselves; they do so primarily because they enhance integration of individual knowledge at the project level.

6 Three Perspectives on Team Learning: Outcome Improvement, Task Mastery, and Group Process

Abstract The emergence of a research literature on team learning has been driven by at least two factors. First, longstanding interest in what makes organizational work teams effective leads

Product Development and Learning in Project Teams: The Challenges Are the Benefits*

The value of teams in new product development (NPD) is undeniable. Both the interdisciplinary nature of the work and industry trends necessitate that professionals from different functions work

Team Cognition: Development and Evolution in Software Project Teams

The results suggest that some forms of communication and team diversity affect the formation of team cognition, and that gender diversity had a strong and positive effect on the development ofteam cognition and the effect remained stable over time.

Software Quality as Influenced by Informational Diversity, Task Conflict, and Learning in Project Teams

The promotion of learning leverages the benefits of informational diversity and serves as a mediator between task-related conflict and software quality.

Team Knowledge and Coordination in Geographically Distributed Software Development

The findings show that software teams have three distinct types of coordination needs and that these needs vary with the members' role; geographic distance has a negative effect on coordination, but is mitigated by shared knowledge of the team and presence awareness.

Inside a software design team: knowledge acquisition, sharing, and integration

A better understanding of the role and process of knowledge acquisition, sharing, and integration in software design has very real implications for managing large software projects, particularly in the areas of planning, staffing, and training.

Software development and new product development: potentials for cross-domain knowledge sharing

The potential for SD and NPD to learn from each other by addressing several important product development challenges is established by deriving significant cross-domain lessons in three areas, namely, teamwork management, development process maturity, and development process acceleration.

Learning from Experience in Software Development: A Multilevel Analysis

The findings support the existence of learning curves in software development and provide insights into when specialized or diverse experience may be more valuable.
