An investigation of the decision-making process in agile teams

Institution: World Scientific Publishing

Description:

This paper firstly explores the decision-making process in agile teams using scrum practices and
secondly identifies factors that influence the decision-making process during the Sprint Planning and
Daily Scrum Meetings. We conducted 34 semi-structuredinterviews and 18 observations across four
agile teams. Our findings show that a rational decision-making process is sometimes followed in the
Sprint Planning and Daily Scrum Meetings and that three factors can influence the rational decisionmaking
process: sprint duration, experience and resource availability. Additionally, decisions are not
always made in a collaborative manner by team members. This research contributes to the decisionmaking
literature and project management literature by highlighting difficulties pertinent to
decision-making in agile teams.
