Abstract [en]

The Method for Method Configuration (MMC) has been proposed as a method engineering approach to tailoring software development methods. This paper evaluates MMC during three software development projects where it was used to tailor eXtreme Programming (XP). The study has been justified by the need to complement earlier evaluations of MMC and providing more conclusive tests to determine the effectiveness of the meta-method in practice. Also, since MMC originates from the plan-based method community, no tests have so far been made on agile methods. Many method engineering concepts have similar roots and it is of interest to evaluate their applicability also in the agile context. We report on the migration results together with lessons learned.
