Abstract: Information Systems Development (ISD) keeps changing and evolving rapidly in a huge variety of aspects, including the technologies that are developed, the methods that are applied, and the structures in which it is organized (Avison & Fitzgerald, 2006). Noticing the need for further understanding of adaptive outcomes such as learning and leadership in agile ISD teams, this research is divided into different phases. The first phase was the review of the literature on learning in the Information Systems literature within IS development teams. Findings from the systematic literature review are reported in Paper 1, entitled “Team Learning in Information Systems Development: A Literature Review”. The last phase includes a comprehensive case study through which Paper 2, entitled “Self-Organization and Leadership in Agile Teams: A Complexity Leadership Approach”, and Paper 3, entitled “Social Capital and Adaptive Outcomes in Agile Information Systems Development Teams”, are derived.
