dc.description.abstractBackground: In spite of their limited scope, measures reflecting adherence to schedule, budget and specification continue to dominate the assessment and reporting of project outcomes. Objective: We set out to explore how the parties involved in the acquisition and deployment of a self-contained software system viewed the project's outcomes, and the measures they considered. Method: Large volumes of empirical data were collected as part of a longitudinal case study conducted in a large multi-national company and were analyzed using qualitative methods. Results: While the conventional criteria remain of interest, the evidence reported here indicates that a richer set of contributors influence perceptions of project success and failure. Conclusions: The evaluation of project outcomes needs to become far more sophisticated and, at the very least, other measures should be considered alongside traditional measures.
