While research and practitioners agree that Design Thinking, Agile Development and Lean Startup are complementary approaches, a seamless integration of those methods into one agile software development process is still subject to research. Towards that gap, this project aims to validate a comprehensive model that can support software teams and management when implementing design thinking, scrum and lean startup in the development process. We will adopt an action research approach to evaluate our model in a Startup environment.
Our findings will provide a deeper understanding of how to offer a comprehensive support for teams and management in agile software companies throughout the whole development process and valuable insights into how to create more innovative software-products.
