Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Mobile systems are determined by requirements which tend to change over time. Agile approaches seem to address this, but fail to provide reliable project plans, budget estimations and capacity forecasts. Thus, mobile enterprise applications demand for tamed agility, reconciling advantages of agile development and plan-driven approaches. In this paper, this tradeoff is addressed. The Interaction Room method is introduced as a low-tech method to support value-oriented development of mobile applications.
