Abstract [en]

One of the most widely used Agile software development (ASD) methods is Scrum. The underlying inspiration for Scrum came from an examination of new product development (NPD). This work proposes that the combination of six management characteristics results in very positive and effective product development: built-in instability, self-organizing project teams, overlapping development phases, "multi-learning", subtle control and organizational transfer of learning (Takeuchi et al. 1986). This paper reports on one strand of an overall research study investigating the motivations for adoption of Scrum. The strand in question focuses on the identification of the particular Scrum practices that relate to NPD characteristics.
