Ledarskap inom ramen för ett systemutvecklingsprojekt: fokus på en arbetsprocess med stöd i Vattenfallsmodellen
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Many research reports mention the fact that a huge number of all system development projects never reach a successful ending; with other words never fulfil formulated goals. By identifying and forming success factors (and in some aspect risk factors) that the project manager in practice can use, this study may be seen as a step in the direction towards minimising the high number of failed system development projects. The purpose of this research report is to investigate how a system development project, where the development process is based on a specific development or process model (in this case the Waterfall model), can and should be driven. I aim to clarify what is demanded of a project leader for the specific development process and give an account for which eventual leadership qualities that can be well suited for given situation in relation to the need for technical competence. Among other things the project manager should inspire confidence, drive, be a decision maker, engage and own some form of basic knowledge in the field of system development. After completed investigation and analysis the given hypothesis is finally verified; leadership qualities are of more importance than technical competence for the project manager in a system development project where the development process is based on the Waterfall model.
