Coordinating Knowledge Work in Multiteam Programs: Findings From a Large-Scale Agile Development Program
Software development projects have undergone remarkable changes with the arrival of agile development approaches. Although intended for small, self-managing teams, these approaches are today used for large development programs. A major challenge of such programs is coordinating many teams.
