Abstract. Knowledge management (KM) is essential for success in global software development. Software organizations are now managing knowledge in innovative ways to increase productivity. In agile software development, collaboration and coordination depend on the communication, which is the key to success. To maintain effective collaboration and coordination in distributed agile projects, practitioners need to adopt different types of knowledge sharing techniques and strategies. There are also few studies that focus on knowledge sharing in distributed agile projects. This research identified the knowledge sharing techniques and strategies applied by the practitioners in distributed agile projects. Challenges faced by the practitioners during knowledge sharing in distributed agile projects are also identified and discussed.
