XP 2020 — 21st International Conference on Agile Software Development
An Agile Alliance Event
June 8-12, 2020 Copenhagen, Denmark
All dates are defined as end of day anywhere on earth.
Given the prevalence of and success with Agile in software development, companies are embarking on a process called ‘Agile transformation’ within IT functions, business units, or whole organizations. The First Workshop on Agile Transformation (ATRANS 2019) took place at XP 2019 and was the culmination of a week in which Agile transformation was identified as an increasingly relevant topic of research. During the workshop, the top three success factors for Agile transformation emerged as: ‘changing organizational culture’, ‘leadership’ and ‘engaging people’. Building on this work, and for this second instantiation of ATRANS, we challenge the scientific community to examine Agile transformation across IT functions, business units, or whole organisations, focusing in particular on the aspects of culture, leadership, people, and sustainability. We welcome both academic research and industry experience papers and will provide an interactive arena for knowledge sharing and exchange of experiences between academics and practitioners.
The goal of the workshop is to share research on Agile transformation, in particular in the areas of culture, leadership and people. We are particularity interested in re-examining the transformation process and identifying key factors which enable or inhibit Agile transformations. Throughout the workshop, we will learn about practitioner experience and academic research.
The topics of interest to this year’s ATRANS include, but are not restricted to, the following:
Submissions will be first screened on rigor and relevance and then evaluated by members of the program committee based on soundness, significance, novelty, verifiability, and presentation quality.
All submissions must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions. See the instructions for authors here. There are two categories of papers:
Both types of papers will be published in the post-conference proceedings, which will be archived by Springer (open access).
By submitting to the ATRANS Workshop, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree that papers submitted must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for the ATRANS Workshop.
Papers must be submitted electronically via EasyChair by March 17, 2020.
