Agile information system development literature often regards project performance as meeting time, cost and quality and overlooked the importance of human skills and competency of soft-ware developers. This gap in agile information system development literature is problematic for several reasons. First, the relationship between software developers’ competency and project performance in agile information system development projects are overlooked, resulting in a partial understanding of agile information system development projects; Second, software developer competency has been shown to increase team performance and successful project out-comes; and finally agile information system development projects include the evident aspects of both meeting technical efficiency such as meeting time, cost and quality and also social aspect or human side management to build a computer-based information system. Thus, in this research, we examine the role of emotional intelligence on team performance in agile information system development projects. In addition, we examine the mechanism underlying the relation-ship between emotional intelligence and team performance.
