Elton Fernandes Gonçalves, Geisa Meirelles Drumond, Mirian Picinini Méxas

Abstract


In project management, the challenge for software development is to achieve success for the proposed projects, using methods such as PMBOK and Scrum. Knowledge of the advantages of these methods are critical success factors for product development. Therefore, the proposal of this study was to verify the perception of specialists of the area of software development on practices of project management. The used methods in this study were the bibliographic, exploratory and qualitative research, with the construction of a questionnaire with 14 items on the advantages of project management practices of various natures, size and complexity, which were applied in 90 specialists. The results of the research demonstrated that all the experts agreed with the advantages of the project management practices, identified based on the literature review, for software development, thus validating the proposed items of the questionnaire. It is recommended for future researches the accomplishment of case studies that explore practical models of evaluation of the use of the practices studied in the scope of software development. It is important in these future studies that metrics and indicators are drawn for each of the advantages cited in the present study.
