A Quantitative Study of Global Software Development Teams, Requirements, and Software Projects
Parker, Linda L.
ProQuest LLC, D.B.A. Dissertation, Capella University
The study explored the relationship between global software development teams, effective software requirements, and stakeholders' perception of successful software development projects within the field of information technology management. It examined the critical relationship between Global Software Development (GSD) teams creating effective software requirements and project success. The study addressed the unique problems inherent to GSD teams that create software requirements. To study the relationships, a Pearson correlation tested two null hypotheses with a set confidence level of 0.995 and a significant of p = 0.005. The Pearson correlation tests indicated the relationship between the variables, stakeholders' perception of successful software project (DV), global software development team (IV) and effective software requirements (IV) were not statistically significant different at p > 0.005. Therefore, the null hypotheses could not be rejected and the alternative hypotheses could not be accepted. It would be advantageous to have further study done broadening the target sample to include a more globally diverse group of IT professionals. Although the findings were not as significant as was hypothesized they would be, this information was still beneficial since it allowed information technology organizations to broaden their understanding of the relationship between global software development teams, software requirements and successful software projects requirements.
