Abstract

In order for a software organization to stay competitive, its software development needs to be part of organizational change. The organization’s ability to change and to adapt quickly to environmental changes provides a foundation for growth and power [7]. For such changes to happen, the learning capabilities of the organization have to be enhanced, being an essential part of producing more effective and efficient work practices. Moreover, continuous learning is essential for surviving – let alone prospering – in dynamic and competitive environments [15]. The Learning Software Organization (LSO) workshop series has been promoting this vision since 1999, addressing the questions of organizational learning from the software development point of view.
