By: Sharma, SharadMaterial type: Computer fileComputer filePublication details: Ahmedabad Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad 2022Description: xiv, 192p. Includes bibliographical references, figures, tables and appendixSubject(s): ISMP performance | Environment | Top management support | Governance mechanism | IS governance | Project governanceDDC classification: TH 2022-11 Online resources: e-Thesis Summary: IS megaprojects (ISMPs) are long duration complex ventures that involve extremely largescale investments, are transformational in nature, influence large populations and engage multiple public and private stakeholders. ISMPs face additional challenges typical of large IS projects and have a blemished history of poor performance. This is further compounded in an emerging economy as most of them lag behind developed countries in terms of technology and infrastructure and suffer from institutional voids. Further, users may also be resistant to and slow adopters of new technologies. In an emerging economy, the capability to recover from poor performance is also very low due to inherent resource constraints. However, studies of ISMPs in developing countries are scant. Therefore, identifying the factors that influence the performance of ISMPs is an important area of study.

IS megaprojects (ISMPs) are long duration complex ventures that involve extremely largescale
investments, are transformational in nature, influence large populations and engage multiple public and private stakeholders. ISMPs face additional challenges typical of large IS projects and have a blemished history of poor performance. This is further compounded in an emerging economy as most of them lag behind developed countries in terms of technology and infrastructure and suffer from institutional voids. Further, users may also be resistant to and slow adopters of new technologies. In an emerging economy, the capability to recover from poor performance is also very low due to inherent resource constraints. However, studies of ISMPs in developing countries are scant. Therefore, identifying the factors that influence the performance of ISMPs is an important area of study.
