The IS project landscape today is volatile, dynamic, and unpredictable which in turn exacerbates the challenges faced by information systems development (ISD) projects. A broad and varied spectrum of methods and practices has emerged to assist individuals, teams, and organizations in this endeavor. These include agile and lean approaches that seek to provide flexibility, eliminate waste and enhance evidence-based decisions in relation to ISD projects. New open source-inspired forms of ISD, such as software development through inner sourcing and crowdsourcing are also emerging. Further, adding to this changing landscape of ISD projects is the diversity of ways in which they are performed: in-house or distributed, outsourced or off-shored. Finally, ISD projects come in different shapes and forms ranging from being conducted within small teams to multi-firm-networked project structures, with time-spans ranging from a few weeks to several years. In summary, all of the above make ISD projects challenging and complex.

We welcome papers in the Managing IS Projects and IS Development track that improve our understanding of the diverse and complex nature of IS projects, particularly with respect to IS development. Submissions could include, but are not limited to the following topics:   

  • Managing issues in IS projects including estimation, risk, quality assurance, governance, and knowledge
  • IS project management capabilities, competence and maturity
  • People-related issues in IS projects, including leadership, power, and politics
  • Managing distributed and virtual IS projects
  • Sourcing of IS projects, including offshoring, outsourcing, nearshoring, crowdsourcing, inner sourcing or multi-sourcing
  • Value enhancement of IS project management
  • IS design and development in practice, including methods and tools such as agile and lean development, component-based processes, service-orientation, and open source
  • Managing IS development and systems integration
  • Managing large scale IS projects such as the deployment and implementation of enterprise systems and other packaged software applications, either as on-premise or as on demand (i.e. cloud) solutions
  • Issues in mobile apps development
