Table of Contents

Following the fruitful workshop last year (see SDG'08 material at our =20= site), we continue this year aiming to examine the research and practice that =20= have emerged and to strengthen the relationships that have evolved.

The theme of the workshop is software development governance (SDG) =20 which is the process that governs software development process. Governance of software development involves the assignment of roles and decision =20 rights as per goals that are set as well as activating measures and policies that enable continuous assessment. Implementing governance in software =20 projects enhances the ability to deal with risks and supports a consistent =20 decision making.

Workshop participants of last year worked on the definition of =20 governance in general and of software development governance in particular. Further, several implementations of governance techniques and mechanisms were examined.

For the 2nd workshop we invite papers that deal with the governance of software development in the level of a team or a project, specifically =20= in nowadays situations like implementing agility or working in distributed environments. The implications of the governance in the level of the =20 team on the governance in the level of the organization is of interest too.

Topics related to software development governance, including (but not limited to)

  • Governance in agile teams
  • Governance in distributed teams
  • Governance models and frameworks
  • Development environment support for software development governance; Governance mechanisms (policies, controls and measurements) that =20 relate to contemporary software development projects and organizations
  • Governance roles and responsibilities in software development settings
  • The lifecycle of software development governance; Ways to assess software development governance and its effects
  • Methods and tools to define and deploy software development governance approaches
  • The role of software development governance in understanding the =20 business value and risk associated with projects
  • Effective measurement =C2 of software development governance
  • Risk and valuation techniques for software development governance
  • Individual, societal, ethical or cultural issues raised by software development governance
