Abstract

Research on software development teams, both co-located and virtual, reveals that additional focus is necessary to improve coordination. This research-in-progress explores one element of gamification for improvingthe initial stages of software team coordination. We develop a model to empirically test the effects of gamification during software requirements elicitation on both co-located and virtual teams based on a controlled 2 x 3 experiment.
