Towards A 5c Theory of Communication for Scrum-Based Distributed Projects

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Scrum-based distributed projects face numerous challenges and failures due geographical, dispersed, times and cultural differences. To improve the success of such software development projects, there is a need to identify factors crucial to achieving the required level of communication between the distributed stakeholders. In this paper, we reviewed the issues and challenges associated with communication in scrum-based distributed projects and explored factors that could improve communication for scrum-based distributed projects. A total number of 25 interviews were conducted in seven geographical regions namely, competency, correlation, comprehension, contentment and commitment; crucial to the success of scrum-based distributed projects. Our identification of these factors presents a research and practice approach to developing a theory of communication that would help project managers, professionals and practitioners to improve practices while undertaking scrum-based distributed projects.
