Software product innovation in agile usability teams: an analytical framework of social capital, network governance, and usability knowledge management
August 1, 2012 Editor 0
As the practice of software engineering matures, project teams are leveraging the expertise of those with a background in other domains such as usability. This paper proposes a model and agenda for understanding and improving social interaction on agile usability software teams.
We argue that social interaction on multidisciplinary agile usability teams, as a means to integrating the software development and usability domains, impacts how usability knowledge is managed, and thus, software product innovation. This work contributes: 1) a background, analysis, and discussion of the various agile usability integration strategies to-date; 2) a model for investigating the social interaction in agile usability teams; 3) a research, practice, and policy agenda for future work toward improving the social interaction in multidisciplinary agile usability software teams.
