Software development is a complex activity that requires a group of individuals working effectively as a team. Studies have shown that the performance of an effective team exceeds that of individuals acting independently.

To observe these characteristics within real software teams, we have chosen the Microsoft company as a case study and have analyzed Microsoft's teams with respect to the characteristics that we define.
