Despite the apparent significant differences between the fundamental principles of agile and Global Software Development (GSD), there is a growing interest in assessing the viability of using agile practices in GSD. But there has been little research in identifying and understanding the challenges involved in integrating agile and GSD and potential strategies to deal with them. One of the key challenges is coordination of the development work. Study asserts that a good understanding of coordination difficulties can help devise strategies to overcome them. The aim of this PhD study is to explore and understand the use of different coordinating mechanisms to coordinate GSD projects while using agile software development practices.
