Abstract [en]

Agile methodologies are becoming increasingly more popular among developers. However, there is little known research regarding the competences of working in development projects. This led me to my research question, what competences are considered important for working in agile projects? I narrowed down my research to three categories of competence; social, functional and cognitive. In order to gather the information needed for the study, I interviewed developers with and extensive knowledge and experience from working in agile development projects. The results from the study revealed that there is a need for a broad set of competences for working in agile development projects.  This study is intended to contribute to the literature on competences is systems development by exploring the competence requirements for systems developers working in agile methods.
