Abstract

This paper emphasises the importance of global teams in
the field of software development. The paper presents an
approach for setting up pilot studies simulating those key
features that make global software development teams
particularly attractive to exploit and challenging to
manage. The underlying research is supported by a
research project funded by the US National Science
Foundation with the participation of universities from US,
Turkey, Panama and the UK. The paper provides detailed
guidelines for setting up simulations resembling globally
dispersed software development teams and discusses
preliminary data of two pilot studies with involving
collaboration between teams residing in the US and the
UK. Key concerns of this research are those factors
affecting collaborative work when global teams are
involved. Such factors include differences caused by
distance, culture, time zones and technology.
