As business and technology environments change at an unprecedented rate, software development agility to respond to changing user requirements has become increasingly critical for software development performance. Agile software development approaches, which emphasize sense-and-respond, self-organization, cross-functional teams, and continuous adaptation, have been adopted by an increasing number of organizations to improve their software development agility. However, the agile development… 
Agility Facilitators for Contemporary Software Development
TLDR
The authors propose a framework that describes the organizational mechanisms through which the nine categories of facilitators lead to software development agility, which is based on an evolved grounded-theory approach.
Agility Practices for Software Development: An Investigation of Agile Organization Concepts
In the context of agile software development in New Zealand and Australia, this paper examines the organizational agility related practices with agile software development. The paper looks at agile
An Empirical Investigation of the Perceived Benefits of Agile Methodologies Using an Innovation-Theoretical model
There is little doubt that agile software development (ASD) methods have gained widespread acceptance in industry. Despite the attention these methods have received, there is little empirical
How Collaboration Software Enables Globally Distributed Software Development Teams to Become Agile - An Effective Use Perspective
TLDR
This study is the first to adopt the lens of effective use theory in order to explore the role of tools in achieving agility, and other favorable project outcomes despite geographic distribution.
An Empirical Investigation of the Perceived Benefits of Agile Methodologies Using an Innovation-Theoretical model
TLDR
The authors' study validates a model to assess the perceived advantage of an iterative approach to software development and suggests that evolutionary development-the cornerstone of agile development-is perceived to be less complex and more compatible with the work habits of developers.
TEAM ADAPTABILITY IN AGILE INFORMATION SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT Research-in-Progress
While agile development methods have enjoyed widespread adoption, literature has lagged behind in the development of theory to explain its impact on team performance. In this paper, we develop a
The Impact of Agile Principles and Practices on Large-Scale Software Development Projects: A Multiple-Case Study of Two Projects at Ericsson
TLDR
Intentional implementation of agile principles and practices were found to correlate with a more balanced use of internal software documentation, contribute to knowledge sharing, correlate with increased project visibility and coordination effectiveness, reduce the need for other types of coordination mechanisms, and possibly increase productivity.
Team Adaptability in Agile Information Systems Development
TLDR
A theoretical model to explain the impact of agile software development on the performance of information systems development (ISD) teams is developed and central team aspects of adaptive teams are proposed to be directly and indirectly influenced by team agility.
The Agile Success Model: A Mixed Methods Study of a Large-Scale Agile Transformation
Organizations are increasingly adopting Agile frameworks for their internal software development. Cost reduction, rapid deployment, requirements and mental model alignment are typical reasons for an

Empirical studies of agile software development: A systematic review
TLDR
A systematic review of empirical studies of agile software development up to and including 2005 was conducted and provides a map of findings, according to topic, that can be compared for relevance to their own settings and situations.
A survey study of critical success factors in agile software projects
TLDR
This research study was a survey study on the critical success factors of Agile software development projects using quantitative approach, finding that only 10 out of 48 hypotheses were supported, identifying threecritical success factors for AgileSoftware Engineering Techniques, Delivery Strategy, and Team Capability.
Agile Software Development
Software development paradigms are shifting. The development group's "team" ability, and the effects of the individual developer, become more important as organizations recognize that the traditional

Agile Modeling, Agile Software Development, and Extreme Programming: The State of Research
TLDR
Since nearly all empirical XP research relates to pair programming, a closer look into the unstudied XP core practices would be beneficial, although interaction between related core practice areas could confound such efforts.

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.
