I am working on a doctoral dissertation, entitled, “Maximizing the Value of Stakeholders: A Phenomenological Study Looking at Why Information Technology Projects Fail” My research will be overseen by my faculty mentor, Dr. Azad Ali
My research examines the lack of stakeholder engagement as a contributing factor of information technology project failure. The primary question being asked is what causes stakeholders to disengage within a failing information technology project that delivers a product or service. I will be recruiting end-users key stakeholders that benefit from an information technology project to participate in my study.
