abstract

  • We empirically explored the implication of hard decisions in the context of the management of global software development (GSD) teams. We hypothesized and empirically tested our belief that hard decision making
    in conventional development projects is very similar to GSD and
    differences arise from the nature of the relationship and the ranking of
    issues. Findings from a Delphi study illustrated our approach and shed
    some light into the management of GSD teams.
