Paper in proceedings, 2015

This position paper presents an emerging research based on a set of expressed statements and impressions from conducted empirical research during the past few years. Agile software development emphasizes on social aspects through its methods and principles. In order to improve the processes within the organization and amongst various stakeholders, there is a need for social processes and various types of interactions to be studied in the context of agile development. The objective of this paper is to present the need to conduct more empirical studies to investigate the socialness of software engineering processes and in particular the role of various type of social interactions in improving development processes and therefore creating more value in organizations.
