Trust in Co-sourced Software Development - Research - Aalborg University

View graph of relations



Software
development projects are increasingly geographical distributed with
offshoring. Co-sourcing is a highly integrative and cohesive approach,
seen successful, to software development offshoring. However, research
of how dynamic aspects of trust are shaped in co-sourcing activities is
limited. We present a case study of how the co-sourcing relationship
between a certified CMMI-level 5 Danish software company and an
offshoring supplier can be conceptualized as an Abstract System. An
Abstract System is a dis-embedded social system (such as banking) that
is trusted despite lack of detailed understanding or personal trust
relations. The paper suggest how certain work practices among developers
and managers can be explained using a dynamic trust lens based on
Abstract Systems, especially dis- and re-embedding mechanisms.
