Title

PRESENTING DATA FOR TEAM-BASED DECISION-MAKING IN AGILE INFORMATION SYSTEMS PROJECTS

Abstract

Although there are a number of purported benefits of agile systems development methods over

traditional forms, many in the Information Systems Development (ISD) community highlight the

difficulties that the dynamic, turbulent nature of agile development environments may present. One

prominent difference compared to traditional ISD projects is the emphasised presence of the customer

in decision-making. Specifically, project management and decision-making can be significantly more

challenging than in projects involving traditional development approaches. This paper describes a

research-in-progress, that focuses on decision-making in agile projects, and aims to develop a better

understanding of how agile teams present dynamic data to decision makers who may act “on the fly”,

and in so doing lead to effective, high quality decision-making in agile environments. The goal of the

paper with its three case studies is to develop a set of best practices for representing decision-making

data in agile ISD projects.
