Abstract

A consistent and reproducible approach to system development methodology is fundamental to information systems. Extensive research has been undertaken beginning in the 1970s to improve the processes and product. However, there still is no generally recognized approach. In January 2003 Avison and Fitzgerald asked in the Communications of the ACM “Where now for development methodologies?” In May 2004 Glass, in the same journal, asked for advice on how and when to use various methodologies in building systems. This research endeavors to address such questions by taking a more comprehensive approach to ebusiness methodology determination through an explanatory survey of a stratified random sample of Web Information Systems project managers from professional organizations and Fortune 1000 organizations.
