Systemic Theory for Software Teams: A Perspective

Sergey Masyagin, Giancarlo Succi, Ananga Thapaliya

Abstract

Complex problems involve a concerted effort by the software team and can absorb vital resources, but our understanding of how the software team forms and succeeds has been minimal. It is not possible to explain the relationships between team achievement and scale, concentration, and especially team expertise by confounding elements, such as age group, additional participation from other individuals who are not in the team, or by team structures. This generates a need to understand software teams using systemic theory. This position paper presents the efforts we have undertaken to study the impact of systemic factors on software development teams and how systemic theory can be used to understand software teams. Our approach looks at the effect of psychological and sociological systemic variables on software teams to identify a way to represent software teams as systems.
