Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to identify the factors that drive efficiency and effectiveness in technical development projects performed at ÅF’s department of product development. In addition to identifying and analyzing these factors, the thesis also analyzes what needs to be taken in to account in order to implement a measurement system that is able to both monitor and control the identified factors.

The thesis has been performed in a qualitative manner. It is based on interviews with people from several different technological companies, within different lines of business, all of which are customers to ÅF’s department of product development.

The results show that there are seven critical factors for project efficiency and effectiveness. These consist of: Communication, Project scope, Top management support, Technical competence, Availability of technical equipment, Processes and methodologies and, lastly, Motivation.

In order to measure these factors, a KPI based measurement system has been analyzed and recommended. To be able to establish a measurement system for specific development projects, the measurement system needs to be able to take a great number of things into consideration. The selected KPIs need to reflect and represent critical factors for efficiency and effectiveness, but also at the same time be adapted to different aspects such as the project’s resources, activities and deliverables.

Lastly, the thesis discusses the use of a KPI library in addition to a set of criteria for choosing appropriate KPIs, and exemplifies how to present the chosen KPIs.
