When Prototyping Meets Storytelling: Practices and Malpractices in Innovating Software Firms


Ciriello, Raffaele Fabio; Richter, Alexander; Schwabe, Gerhard (2017). When Prototyping Meets Storytelling: Practices and Malpractices in Innovating Software Firms. In: 39th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE17), Buenos Aires, Argentina, 20 May 2017 - 27 May 2017.

Abstract

Storytelling is an important but often underestimated practice in software engineering. Whereas existing research widely regards storytelling as creating a common understanding between developers and users, we argue that storytelling and prototyping are intertwined practices for innovators to persuade decision makers. Based on a two-year qualitative case study in two innovating software firms, we identify and dialectically examine practices of storytelling and prototyping. Our study implies that storytelling and prototyping should be integrated together into software engineering methods.
