Project Managers' Practical Intelligence and Project Performance in Software Offshore Outsourcing: A Field Study

Nishtha Langer, Sandra A. Slaughter, Tridas Mukhopadhyay
2014 Information systems research  
Given that PMs with high PI are scarce resources, our findings also have practical implications for the optimal resource allocation and training of PMs in software offshore services companies.  ...  T his study examines the role of project managers' (PM) practical intelligence (PI) in the performance of software offshore outsourcing projects.  ...  We find that the effect of PI is consistent over time and precludes any learning effect.  ...

Collaboration change in enterprise software development

Kari Smolander, Matti Rossi, Samuli Pekkola
2016 Proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering - CHASE '16  
Enterprise software is often developed by a systems integrator that makes modifications to a pre-made package or builds tailored software for the specific purpose.  ...  The development may include many developer organizations, the user organization, and their different departments and sub-units.  ...  This finding does not provide direct testable propositions, but it can guide further research and practice improvement in enterprise software development.  ...

Developments in Practice XIV: IT Sourcing - How Far Can You Go?

Heather A. Smith
2004 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
This paper explores the evolution of sourcing and how sourcing strategies are shifting. Then it looks at emerging sourcing models and particularly at offshore/nearshore outsourcing.  ...  The paper concludes that while sourcing is changing the nature of the work that is done internally in IT, it is unlikely that it will eliminate this function altogether or reduce the its value to that  ...  She is also a Research Associate with the Lac Carling Conference on E-Government, the Society for Information Management, and Chair of the IT Excellence Awards University Advisory Council.  ...
