Summary

Coordination is a fundamental problem in global software development (GSD). The practice of GSD suggests clearly that technology, information, and organization interrelate to provide with cost, access, market, teamwork, and development advantages. The disparity between coordination practice and theory is a significant theoretical gap that this book attempts to fill. Virtualization is given primacy ahead of rationality and indeterminacy – two predominant organizational logics – because it is the of GSD. Virtualization encapsulates technology, information, geography and organization better than rationality and indeterminacy because the latter two assume that ICT is instrumental and supportive.
