Conboy, K., Acton, T., Halonen, R. (December 13, 2008) "Data presentation for agile information systems project decision making." Paper 3. Paper presented at RTDMC-08 Pre-ICIS Workshop on Supporting real time decision-making: The role of context in decision support on the move. Paris, France.
Awareness and use of agile methods has grown rapidly amongst the information systems development (ISD) community in recent years, and have been largely well received. While there are a number of purported benefits, many highlight the difficulties that the dynamic, turbulent nature of agile development environments may present. Specifically, project management and decision-making processes are significantly more challenging than when traditional development approaches are used. This paper focuses on decision-making in agile projects, and aims to develop a better understanding of current approaches and processes. We investigate how best to present dynamic data to decision makers who may act ¿on the fly¿ and to develop a model for effective, high quality decision-making in agile environments.
