Technology, Processes More Important Than People in Driving Development Success

Can tech make a bigger difference than the team?

Ask 10 IT people what the most important factors are in determining the success of development projects and you'll probably get ten different answers. What do you think are the most important factors in determining the success of software development projects? 

  • The people
  • The processes
  • The culture at the company
  • The technologies
  • The tools

Even in academic circles, there is not agreement. The research described in this paper considers the relationships among a number of project considerations and six measures of project success.

Results show that participants rate the performance of various people and team considerations the highest, but correlational and regression analysis suggest technology and process considerations are even more important in explaining the success of development projects.
