Agilitás a kis magyar informatikai vállalkozásokban a COVID-19 idején

COVID-19, agile methodology, scrum, software development, quarantine work, forced teleworking


COVID-19 has changed the way the world works, the frameworks and ways of cooperation and methods. Every organization must be able to cope with major unforeseen disruptions, environmental changes and uncertainties. Studies in the international literature have examined the impact of COVID-19 on agile organizations and some have indicated that agility has been a very useful solution for many organizations during the COVID-19 crisis, as agile teams or organizations have been able to build for the long term in a dynamically changing turbulent environment. There has been no discussion in the Hungarian literature, however, on the impact of the changes generated by COVID-19 on small agile software development companies and teams less likely to adopt a work from home strategy before the virus or how these organizations have responded to the current changes. This paper primarily sought to address these issues and to fill this gap in the Hungarian literature.
