dc.description.abstractEvaluating, monitoring, and improving the effectiveness of project management can contribute to successful acquisition of software systems. In this dissertation, we introduce a quantitative metric for gauging the effectiveness of managing a software-development project. The metric may be used to evaluate and monitor project management effectiveness in software projects by project managers, technical managers, executive managers, project team leaders and various experts in the project organization. It also has the potential to be used to quantify the effectiveness improvement efforts on project management areas. The metric is validated by conducting survey studies on software projects from public and private sectors. A statistical analysis of sixteen surveys on software projects, spanning small to large development projects, indicated that there is a strong positive correlation with software project success ratings provided by study participants and project management effectiveness measurements. Other contributions of this research include identification of approaches for measuring project management effectiveness of software projects, establishment of theories on project management and on project management effectiveness measurement, and the introduction and validation of a framework for software project management.en_US
