Knowledge transfer challenges and mitigation strategies in global software development – A systematic literature review and industrial validation
2013 (English)In: International Journal of Information Management, ISSN 0268-4012, Vol. 33, no 2, 333-355 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In this article we considered knowledge transfer (KT) in global software development (GSD) from two perspectives, state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice, in order to identify what are the challenges that hamper the success of KT in global software teams, as well as to find out what are the mitigation strategies that can be used to overcome such challenges. The overall aim of this work is to provide a body of knowledge for enabling successful KT in GSD settings. This is achieved by an in-depth understanding of KT challenges and mitigation strategies, both from the perspective of literature and industry. It also identifies the similarities and differences in challenges and strategies gathered from literature studies and industrial experts.
