KNOWLEDGE SHARING IN TRADITIONAL AND AGILE SOFTWARE PROCESSES

Broderick Crawford, Claudio León de la Barra, José Miguel Rubio León

Abstract

The software development community has a wide spectrum of methodologies to implement a software project. In one side of the spectrum we have the more Traditional deterministic software development derived from Tayloristic management practices, and in the other side, are the Agile software development approaches. The Agile processes are people oriented rather than process oriented, unlike the Traditional processes they are adaptive and not predictive. Software development is a knowledge intensive activity and the Knowledge Creation and Sharing are crucial parts of the software development processes. This paper presents a comparison between Knowledge Sharing approaches of Agile and Tayloristic software development teams.
