Agile Development techniques have become the industry standard in Software Development in the pursuit for better performance. The popularity of these techniques and methods has caused them to slowly spread to other domains. Thus, the aim of this paper is to identify how some of these Agile Development techniques influence the team organisation, when implemented in the development environments of traditional product development companies. A case study of seven companies has been carried out in order to identify and analyse the challenges of composing teams in development environments where the agile process framework called Scrum is implemented. The case study has resulted in the identification of five specific challenges in regard to team composition when implementing Scrum in integrated development environments. The challenges are analysed and discussed and the team organisation of the respective companies are furthermore presented.

Keywords: Integrated Product Development, Organisation Of Product Development, Agile Development, Scrum
