The lack of knowledge of these maturity models causes organizations to experience problems in the development and impr...
Chapter
The project management paradigm is changing. Agile methodologies are part of this change. They came in opposition to traditional standards and their dissemination and intertwining is resulting in the adaption of traditional models to hybrid models, especially when dealing with small projects. They allow to balance flexibility and predictability. Th...

Agile methodologies are increasingly considered important in the current context because of their focus on business benefit, strong stakeholder involvement and rapid incorporation of changing requirements. The Scrum methodology presents a generic and agile model for software development, but there are some gaps regarding solution architecture and r...
Article
This article aims to make a contribution to theory, as well as to practice, by identifying which project management practices are used by most private organizations in general and by sector of activity. The influence of practitioners' characteristics in the choice of project management practices and their use in groups are also analyzed. The result...

The identification and implementation of the best practices of project management are preponderant and decisive factors for the success of the companies, regardless of their area of intervention. This highlight arose from the need for companies to respond quickly, efficiently and in an integrated manner to the challenges that an ever-changing envir...
Chapter
Typically, we measure the success of an Information Technology project through time, budget and quality. However, with the advance of years, we found that stakeholders have also something to say about success evaluation. Each stakeholder has an impact, its own interests and expectations about the project development. Therefore, what for some can be...

Earned Value Management (EVM) and Project Risk Management are normally considered separately in Project Management. Referring PMBoK®, EVM is part of Project Time Management and Project Cost Management knowledge areas, while Project Risk Management is a different knowledge area with no apparent relation with the previous ones, although the fundament...
Conference Paper
The integration between Earned Value Management (EVM) and Project Risk Management immediately raises the question of the relationship between the two methods, even though EVM and project risk management share the same function in project management: promote the project success. At first glance it seems to be no further connection between these two...

The lack of preparation of Software Engineering (SE) graduates for a professional career is a common complaint raised by industry practitioners. One approach to solving, or at least mitigating, this problem is the adoption of the Project-Based Learning (PBL) training methodology. Additionally, the involvement of students in real industrial projects...
Conference Paper
Empirical studies are important in software engineering to evaluate new tools, techniques, methods and technologies. In object-oriented analysis, use case models describe the functional requirements of a software system, so they can be the basis for software measurement and sizing. The purpose of this study is to develop a new metric called Archite...
Conference Paper

This work aims to determine the impact of the agile methodologies usage in software development, in particular, the usefulness and impact of the adoption of Scrum in a real business scenario. The aim is thus whether the adoption and implementation of this methodology, has contributed, and to what extent, for the mitigation of the risk management of...
Conference Paper
Empirical studies are important in software engineering to evaluate new tools, techniques, methods and technologies in a structured way before they are introduced in the industrial (real) software process. Perform empirical studies in a real context is very difficult due to various obstacles. An interesting alternative is perform empirical studies...

Full-text available
Unfortunately software development projects have long been identified with budget complications, delays and failure concerning scope. For instance, the widely quoted CHAOS Reports of the Standish Group, whose first results were released in 1994, find that while this situation has improved, deviations from the plan continue to be present in a majori...

Project success is highly dependent on the project management process, and there are several aspects that need to be carefully considered. This article aims at responding to the research question: are there similarities in different industries in what concerns the critical aspects for the success of project management? Throughout a comprehensive su...
Conference Paper
The simultaneous adoption of CMMI and RUP allows the definition of "what to do" (with the support of CMMI) and "how to do" (with the support of RUP) in the context of executing software development projects. In this paper, our main contribution relates to the alignment of CMMI ML2 with RUP, in the context of executing software projects and the anal...

The construction industry plays a very important role in the Portuguese economy. In 2009, it was among the top five economic sectors, representing 13% of total employment. Nevertheless, project failures are still frequent mainly due to inadequate management practices and to the intrinsic characteristics of projects of the construction industry. Eve...
Conference Paper
To improve quality, organizations are widely using Software Process Improvement (SPI) models and in particular CMMI. Nevertheless, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are reluctant in adopting CMMI since the complexity and size of the framework discourage its adoption. RUP is presented as a disciplined approach for assigning tasks and responsibilit...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Failures in construction projects are very frequent, in part because of the great specificity of the construction industry and in another part because of the lack of adequate management procedures. Even though Portuguese constructions have improved in the last years, cost and schedule overruns, low productivity and lack of quality of final products...
