Abstract

Psychology and Computer Science are growing in a Interdisciplinary relationship mainly because human and social factors are very important in developing software and hardware. The development of new software/hardware products requires the generation of novel and useful ideas. In this paper, the Agile method called extreme Programming (XP) is analyzed and evaluated from the perspective of the creativity, in particular the creative performance and structure required at the teamwork level. The conclusion is that XP has characteristics that ensure the creative performance of the team members, but we believe that it can be fostered from a creativity perspective.
