Activity Theory to explore transitioning to agile methods: contribution to #XP2020

The 21st International Conference on Agile Software Development XP2020 takes place this week between Monday 8th and Friday 12th June. Normally delegates would be gathering in Copenhagen to participate in the event. Like many conferences this year, however, the conference has switched to a virtual format.

Amongst the work to be presented at the conference is a paper by Centre for Social Informatics colleagues Pritam Chita, Peter Cruickshank and Dr Colin Smith, with Dr Kendall Richards of Edinburgh Napier University’s Centre for Computing Education Research.

The paper is an output from Pritam‘s doctoral work on organisational learning and agile project management. Entitled Agile implementation and expansive learrning: identifying contradictions and their resolution using an Activity Theory perspective, it has already been published by Springer in the conference proceedings. The is publicly available now in two formats: in full text, and as a PDF download.

Pritam will be presenting the paper in the Agile Roles session of the conference. This takes place on the afternoon of Thursday 11th June between 15:45 and 17:15 UK time.
