The Impact of Agile Project Management Methodology on IT Project Success: Exploring the Mediating role of Team Communication and Team Empowerment
Purpose – Based on the Resource Based View (RBV) and Social Identity Theory (SIT), this study aims to determine the impact of agile project management methodology (AM) on project success (PS) through the mediating role of team-level outcomes (team communication and team empowerment) on the relationship between AM and PS.
Design/methodology/approach - The data were collected from 226 project team professionals working in the IT sector of Pakistan. The study applied Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) to substantiate the direct and mediating effects.
Findings - The result indicated that agile methodology has a positive and significant impact on project success. Moreover, the result further validated that team communication and team empowerment mediates the relationship between agile methodology and project success.
Originality/value - There is a dearth of an empirical investigation on the relationship between AM and PS in developing republics context. This study makes a significant contribution to the field of IT project management by demonstrating that AM impacts PS while team communication and team empowerment mediate this relation. This is one of the earliest study that explores the inter-relationship among AM, PS, and team outcomes.
