Abstract

The Standish Group (2004) claims only 29% of IT projects are completed on time and on budget, with all features and functions originally specified. The use of a development methodology as long ago as 1970 has been considered critical in project success when building systems, however, the choice of which methodology is best suited for these projects is still under debate (Glass, 2004). This research-in-progress begins to identify the relationships between organization, project, and team variables that lead to project success.
