[Objective] The aim of our research is to identify and describe underlying factors which can explain why certain practices support aligning and coordinating software development projects.
[Method] We have inductively generated a theory analysing empirical data consisting of 15 interviews from 5 different companies. The systematic and iterative analysis was based on an initial hypothesis that distances affect development, and on results from previous research.
[Results] We present a theory of distances that explains how practices improve the communication within a project by impacting distances between people, activities and artefacts. We also present a theoretical model of how specific alignment practices affect different types of distances.
[Conclusions] The results provide a basis for further research and can be used by software organisations to improve on software practice.
