Software developer's journey a story-driven approach to support software practitioner (2016)

Abstract Agile development requires a highly iterative and collaborative design process, which relies on the successful interpretation of software development activities amongst team members throughout the overall process. However, contemporary methods and tools that support agile e orts provide little help in addressing context-speci c tacit knowl- edge, which is di cult to externalize without a shared method of inter- pretation. Without a continuously updated interpretation of the project vision, it is di cult to claim a shared mental model, while this is actu- ally vital for the success of an agile process. In this paper, we address this issue and seek guidance in an approach that is commonly used in lm storycraft. Film production has ample experience with externalizing experiences with the help of visual planning tools and related techniques to orchestrate the creative e orts of vast interdisciplinary production teams. We therefore propose that methods and tools from visual sto- rycrafting can be adapted to assist software developers, not only with externalizing and discussing context-speci c tacit knowledge but also to keep them creatively engaged in the development process.
