A systematic review of the published literature on distributed software development (DSD) resulted in the selection of 30 studies of acceptable rigor for detailed review. This summary of the detailed review results identifies factors and perspectives that an actionable DSD process model might include. It also discusses the implications for future research. A Web Extra, "Selection and Analysis Methods for Distributed Software Development Studies," contains details about the 30 selected studies.
