ABSTRACT
In any information systems project management, comprehending what the customer wants is critical to its success. There are several symptoms related to the delivery of a poor information system: frequent requests for changes by users; users' lack of understanding of their own requirements; overlooked tasks; insufficient communication; poor requirements definition; and lack of ample methodology and guidelines for estimating. On the other hand, there are several factors which contributed to the success of a project: project commitment; frequent feedback from parent organizations; frequent feedback from client; client commitment; organization structure suited to project team; and project team participation in determining schedules and budgets.
