IT Project Management Strategies for Staying out of Trouble:
Results from the December 2010 DDJ State of the IT Union Survey
|This survey was performed during the month of December 2010 and early January 2011 and there was 235 respondents. The survey was announced in my November 2010 DDJ Agile Update, Agile Documentation and Specification Strategies, and in Jon Erickson's blog.||
The focus of the survey was to explore how IT project teams were "staying out of trouble" with their stakeholders. The survey asked people what strategies they had applied on the most recent "completed" IT project that they had been involved with. The survey results are summarized in Survey Shows Unethical Behavior Rampant Inside IT Development Teams.
Some findings include:
Figure 1. Effective IT strategies for staying out of trouble.
Figure 2. Questionable IT strategies for staying out of trouble.
Figure 3. How effective is your IT governance strategy?
You may use this data as you see fit, but may not sell it in whole or in part. You may publish summaries of the findings, but if you do so you must reference the survey accordingly (include the name and the URL to this page). Feel free to contact me with questions. Better yet, if you publish, please let me know so I can link to your work.
I'm sharing the results, and in particular the source data, of my surveys for several reasons:
