Software-Enabled Project Management Techniques and Their Relationship to the Triple Constraints
Elleh, Festus U.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This study investigated the relationship between software-enabled project management techniques and the triple constraints (time, cost, and scope). There was the dearth of academic literature that focused on the relationship between software-enabled project management techniques and the triple constraints (time, cost, and scope). Based on the gap in literature, the research questions were formulated. A web-based survey provider, Survey Monkey, was engaged to enable potential participants to access and complete an online survey, which was developed by this researcher. The study was conducted using data from 177 respondents. Seventy-five of the 177 respondents did not have any experience in one or more of the software-enabled project management techniques and were therefore excluded from further analysis, which left 102 respondents. The findings from this study showed that there was a significant positive relationship between software-enabled project management techniques (SE-CPM, SE-PERT, SE-EVM, and SE-WBS) and the achievement of the triple constraints (time, cost, and scope). The study highlighted the implications of these findings for organizations, software providers, and the academia. The implications are that organizations have the prospect of improving project success by investing more in software tools; software providers and vendors have market future for their products; scholars and academic institutions should focus more on the technological aspect of project management education. The study recommended that future research should focus on evaluating the moderating effect of project complexity, the inclusion of more project management techniques, and decision support tools for managing the triple constraints.
