This inductive study develops a model of innovation and adaptability in software product development. It is based on a case study of a company that is transitioning from a custom development approach to a product-based solution. The emergent model represents a synthesis of the case study findings and the enfolding literature from traditional product development and software development. The goal of the emergent software product development model is to guide organizations in their selection of development processes.
