A model of client maturity assessment for IT projects
AbstractBased on qualitative research, the article aims to present an application of a universal research scheme enabling the client type identification in the IT sector. This kind of assessment should constitute an idispensable stage in the process of selecting a suitable IT project implementation methodology – one that will prove effective for cooperating with a particular type of client. Unfortunately, this approach has been neglected in both the reference literature and business reality. Instead, the main emphasis is put on IT project-related methodologies and tools as such. The suggested scheme, with its workflow, methods and tools, results from the author’s earlier research work as well as her seasoned knowledge and expertise in project management, IT and psychology. The paper is an account of the first stage of the study of an effective model of client cooperation within IT projects.
