ABSTRACT
U.S. organizations have successfully used offshore resources in software projects. There is a lack of academic research, however, regarding business leadership styles in technology sectors that contribute to software project success. This quantitative research study examined the leadership styles contributing to software project success as perceived by project managers and project stakeholders. Based on the leadership models for understanding styles by Bass, a referral sample (N = 110) of offshore software development center stakeholders completed an electronic survey, indicating leadership factors that contributed to success. The current study contributes to the understanding of the role that leadership styles of project managers have in determining the success or failures of IT projects in offshore datacenters.
