Unbelievable, now we have reached the 7th variation of the XP2k+n convention! We all started on the outset of the recent millennium, and we're nonetheless proving that agile pr- esses have been neither a millennium trojan horse nor a YAF (yet one other fad). In its first versions, this convention used to be a get-together of some pioneers who - bated approximately find out how to make agile tactics and strategies authorized by means of the mainstream researchers and practitioners in software program engineering. Now agile method of software program improvement has been absolutely authorized through the software program engineering neighborhood and this occasion has develop into the most important discussion board for knowing larger the results of agility in software program improvement and presenting extensions to the mainstream ways. those elements have been absolutely mirrored during this year’s convention. They have been - flected within the keynote speeches, which coated the history paintings performed beginning as early because the early eighties by means of Barry Boehm, definition of the sector by way of Kent Beck, a winning commercial software in a hit tale through Sean Hanly, the point of view and the way forward for agile tools in huge firms by means of Jack Järkvik, or even a few - sightful perspectives from a thinker, Pekka Himanen.

Section 2 describes the identification of the students’ personalities and temperaments. Section 3 describes the experiments and in section 4 we draw our conclusions and summarize our findings. 2 Identifying Personalities and Temperaments The two widely used tools to assist in the identification of personality and temperament types are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI3) [13] and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS4) [12]. e. leader, mentor). e. tester). Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and MBTI are registered trademarks of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Trust.

In our main survey, we included several questions that were identical (verbatim) to the questions of the supplementary survey. The objective for using these two surveys was to enable comparative analysis of the results: Agile vs General IT and Non-agile vs. General IT. Notice that both surveys were administered on the Web and during the same year. In this paper we only discuss a subset of our findings based on the responses to questions dealing exclusively with overall job satisfaction and its determinants (satisfiers).

In the present study, we set out to investigate how employees in agile and non-agile teams perceive the quality of their work life. By restricting our attention to job satisfaction, we can sharpen the understanding of its multiple determinants and those aspects of software engineering that are most valued by the individual. 2 Research Questions, Context and Method To structure our research, we followed the Goal/Questions/Metrics GQM) Paradigm [2]. Table 1 provides a summary of the goals, research questions and metrics.
