Description

The concept of project success in Information Systems and Project Management research has been one of the key concepts in the field. However, after years of research, the field agrees only that the concept of success is critical to the field, and there is no agreed upon definition or operationalization. This paper undertakes a critical review of the literature related to project success in the IS and project management fields finding that each of the dominant perspectives has philosophical and practical inadequacies. It then proposes a set of propositions for developing a new conceptualization of project success.
