By incorporating best practices fromthe previous reviews, as well as taking into account found flaws, a semi-systematicliterature review is conducted and compared the literature findings with findingsfrom interviews with industry stakeholders. Several areas of misalignment betweenindustry’s interest and literature’s practices are outlined.
