dc.description.abstractA survey of New Zealand organisations with 200 or more full-time employees was undertaken in order to obtain an updated assessment of IS development practice. Over the period surveyed (2001-2003), larger organisations (500 or more FTEs) or those with larger IS functions (10 or more IS FTEs) undertook significantly more IS projects, more expensive projects, more projects in which users participated and more projects in which a standard method was used, than their smaller counterparts. In the same period, there has been a trend towards increased use of packaged software solutions and outsourced development or customisation of packaged solutions. Factors perceived as most important to facilitating or inhibiting development in actual IS projects were related to availability of resources, definition of user requirements, communication between developers and users, project management, management of IS development-related change, and developer knowledge of the IS development context.
