Abstract—This paper describes some management lessons learned from a Global Software Development project undertaken in an educational setting with the students from Senegal, India, and the US. It was the first time that the project adopted Agile Methodologies and Scrum for the development of a mobile application. The students considered this Scrum experience a rewarding learning process. As the only experienced working IT professional among the participants, the author has summarized some important management lessons based on the accomplished collaborative work and interviews with the student developers and professors. The relevant suggestions for Educators and Project Managers for similar projects are provided.

Index Terms—Management lessons, scrum, computer science education, global software development.
