Global Software Development (GSD) has become the norm in product development. In GSD projects, controlling and management activities are increasingly important as the products are developed in dynamic environments where requirements, priorities, participating sites, development processes, tools and even partners are continuously changing. Up-to-date information on project status is critical to completing GSD projects effectively. The objective of the research reported in this paper was to make progress from fixed and inflexible measurements towards dynamic, reliable and up-to-date support for decision making in GSD.
