In this study fourteen factors affecting the use and acceptance of systems development methodologies by individual systems developers were investigated. The results show that relative advantage, compatibility and trialability of a systems development methodology, an individual’s experience in systems development and his/her experience in systems development methodologies, management support and peer developer support, and uncertainty about the continued existence of the IS department significantly influence the deployment of systems development methodologies.
