My research in this area has two primary foci with regard to software development teams. The first is a focus on collaboration processes that software project teams can use to improve outcomes (e.g., software quality and on-time delivery), particularly under challenging conditions such as technical risk and deadline pressure. The second is a focus on identifying what project managers can do to enable software project teams to achieve positive outcomes under challenging conditions.
