The study is designed to evaluate an integrative IT project management process model that gives specific recommendations for IT project managers on how to ‘upgrade’ existing IT project management methodologies from local to globally distributed software development.
They are inviting IT project managers (with or without experience in globally distributed software development) to participate in this research. Participants will be asked to take part in a half-hour to an hour-long interview. The goal for the interview is to evaluate the integrative process model with respect to its relevance, suitability and accessibility to practice.
If a participant has personal experience with globally distributed software development, the interview will, among other things, explore whether the model is complete, accurate, and how it could be improved further, based on the participant's experience. Otherwise, the interview will instead evaluate whether the model appears helpful if the participant had to take charge of a local-to-global software development transition, and how we could improve the model further for first-time users.
The interviews will start around early February 2018.
