Applying Forensic Analysis Factors to Construct a Systems Dynamics Model for Failed Software Projects

Stephen Kaisler, William Money, Stephen Cohen
2022 Proceedings of the Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences   unpublished
This paper proposes the development of a System Dynamics (SD) model that will represent the key factors, their dynamic interactions, and the influence of exogenous events in causing software project failure  ...  Outcomes from the model will include a likelihood of software project failure, possible factor sequences leading to failure, and suggestions of remediation activities that might mitigate eventual failure  ...  Note: An extensive bibliography has been prepared for this project and is available from the authors.  ...
