dc.description.abstract This article explores how agile practices can reduce three kinds of “distance” — temporal, geographical,and sociocultural — in global software development (GSD). On the basis of two indepth case studies, specific Scrum and eXtreme Programming (XP) practices are found to be useful for reducing communication, coordination, and control problems that have been associated with GSD. en_US
