Abstract

The implementation of a systems development methodology (SDM) is one of the more difficult paths that many organizational managers have been traversing without benefit of guidance. This research project contains the results of a survey of participants on actual SDM implementation projects using an instrument based on interviews of experts in SDM implementation. The data collected was analyzed, using factor analysis, which identified five factors to consider during SDM implementation: Understanding Methodology Specifics and Benefits, System Personnel Manager Involvement and Responsibility with Organizational SDM Transition, Use of Models, Functional Manager Involvement/Support, and External Support. By paying close attention to aspects of these five factors, organizational managers can help their organization through the major change management phases of’ readiness, adoption, and institutionlization of the changes caused by SDM implementation.
