      Software process in industrial settings is evaluated by a “lightweight” defect analysis approach. Results show that several useful measurements in terms of “attained quality” versus “spent effort” on the implementation, testing, and defect fixing phases can be retrieved by using minimal information extracted from software defects repositories. Besides results specific to the case study, a set of hypotheses is framed conjecturing the likely causes of efficiency bottlenecks in industrial processes resembling the analysed one

      How software development competences change in global settings—an explorative study (pages 50–72)

      Philipp Holtkamp, Ivan Lau and Jan Martin Pawlowski

      Article first published online: 30 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/smr.1701

      We present the results of explorative expert interviews on the relation of context, challenges, and interventions in global software development from a competences-based perspective. We demonstrate that a variety of challenges is based on a lack of competences and that an adaptation of competences to the context based on internationalization competences promises the reduction of challenges. We present a set of influence factors on the adaptation needs and the importance of internationalization competences and give a first insight into the adaptation process.
