Agile software engineering techniques: the missing link in large scale lean product development

Alexander Scheerer , Christoph T. Schmidt , Armin Heinzl , Tobias Hildenbrand and Dirk Voelz

This paper shows empirical insights on how to implement these principles in a professional context and every-day work.
