English abstract:
In computer science education, one of the main goals
for educators is to prepare the student for employment in an
industrial environment. For this it is required that the students
are familiar with the major development process, ideally on the
example of a concrete student project. During a one-semester
software development seminar the students were grouped into 7
groups with 4-5 students each and each group was assigned
eXtreme Programming, SCRUM or Open Unified Process as
development process. Each student was asked to keep a
development diary and answer questionnaires during and at the
end of the project. Each group was asked to document the
changes to their development process, identified development
problems, employed mitigation strategies and the project
progress in form of a retrospective report. Analysis of the reports
revealed common issues and mitigation strategies, which can be
classified into the following: meeting organization;
communication; project roles, requirements engineering,
continuous tests and process adherence. The employed mitigation
strategies were classified into the same categories; quantified and
evaluated regarding their respective effectiveness.
