Definition of Done [survey]
I am a master's student at the University of Utrecht. I am currently working on the final part of my master’s degree which is the Master Thesis. The topic of my thesis is the Definition of Done (DoD). More specifically, the goal of the thesis is to construct a reference framework that summarizes the effects of situational factors on the inclusion/exclusion/adaptation of requirements in your DoD. In this context, a situational factor could be, for example, the experience level of your agile team members, the use of new emergent technology, or the geographical distance between teams/team members. As such, to gather data, I made a questionnaire to identify the correlation between situational factor Classes (as indicated by Clarke et al. ) and their effects on the requirements (e.g. unit testing, smoke testing, tagging) that are included/excluded/adapted when drafting a DoD.
The questionnaire is lengthy (~25 minutes). For each class, I provided the situational factors, to ensure that the respondent is able to accurately comprehend them. As such, I understand any apprehension to complete the questionnaire, but I would really appreciate your input and help so that I can complete my master thesis.
