Modeling Alignment of Software Projects Needs with Software Project Teams’ Needs: It is a Balancing Act
Due to the fastpaced, competitive world in which information and communication technology (ICT) projects are run, as well as ICT professionals’ constantly evolving requirements, project managers face a challenge in aligning project requirements with project team members. A project client measures project success by how well a project manager meets project goals, whereas software project teams (SPTs) measure project success by a manager’s ability to meet their project-related needs. This chapter claims that if project requirements are properly aligned with team members’ requirements, a balanced decision approach will result. Furthermore, such alignment will result in the realization of SPTs’ needs as well as meeting the needs of the project. The chapter presents a Software Project Needs and Software Project Team Needs (SPnSPTn) alignment model and argues that using the SPnSPTn alignment model can result in a balanced decision that meets both the software project’s and team members’ needs.
