1) Success Factors in Industry-Academia Collaboration – An Empirical Study
The presentation is focused on two studies of success factors in industry-academia collaboration. One study is conducted in Sweden and another study is conducted in Australia. The studies were conducted based on identification of 14 potential key factors for successful collaboration. Different stakeholders were asked to prioritize the factors. The stakeholders include people from industry, students and researchers. The presentation discusses the key factors to have in place to be successful in industry-academia collaboration. Furthermore, a discussion of the differences and similarities between the views of the different stakeholders is presented.
2) Software Development Going Incremental, Iterative and Agile: Advantages and Challenges
Software development is more and more changing from long projects using a waterfall model to become more incremental, iterative and agile. The presentation highlights the difficulties with the waterfall development based on an industrial case study. Furthermore, it illustrates how a new process is introduced at the company and how it relates to the literature in terms of incremental and agile development. The presentation also highlights the advantages with going incremental, iterative and agile in relation to having a waterfall inspired development model. Finally, the challenges in the new development model are discussed. It is concluded that the new model is perceived as superior, but it also results in some new challenges that have to be addressed in future research.
