THE IMPACT OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCES ON IT PROJECT SUCCESS IN SA

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

The aim of this study is to better understand the cultural dimension of individual IT project team members on IT project success. Furthermore, it aims to provide guidance as to how cultural differences in project teams could be managed in order to improve project success.

This research aims to find out:

a) The impact of cultural differences among IT project teams influence projects
success.
b) The salient cultural factors among IT project team members that influence project
success.
c) How cultural differences among IT project team members can be managed to
improve IT project success.

NATURE OF PARTICIPATION

There is no extensive coverage of the cultural differences within IT project teams in the South African context which impact project success. You are thus invited to provide your insights on the impact of cultural differences among project team members as one of the main drivers that may affect IT project success in the South African context. As a project manager you are capacitated to detect unstated assumptions and resolve conflicts among stakeholders including project team members.

This will assist other project managers and project teams to better understand and manage the impact of cultural differences on IT project success. The distribution of the questionnaire has been facilitated by Project Management South
Africa (PMSA), where I am also a member. As a result, your contacts are known to PMSA only.
