Abstract [en]

Tailoring systems development methods is a challenge. Both the research of method engineering and method-in-action have put much effort into this issue. State-of-the art Computer-Aided Method Engineering tools for situational method engineering often requires specific competences in meta modelling languages. Together with the tool investments they often become heavy weight solutions for small systems development companies that seek method tailoring support. In this paper a wiki-based approach to method tailoring, the Wiki Method Tool (WMT), has been evaluated during two systems development projects. The evaluation of this light weight tool has been carried out in a small systems development company in Sweden. The evaluation has been anchored in Activity Theory to focus on the collaborative actions on the situational methods using the WMT, such as changing work descriptions and templates. The WMT itself contributed with data about each documented change -- what the change looked like, by whom, and when it was made. Based on these data and subsequent interviews, we report on lessons learned and can conclude that all team members have contributed to the situational methods. It also means that they took a shared responsibility for the role as method engineer.
