Closing the Stakeholder Expectation Gap

Managing Customer Expectations toward the Process of Developing Information Systems

Whereas expectations concerning both process and product are essential for information system development (ISD) project success, research has focused on end-user expectations toward the product.

Our study provides means to manage customer expectations and thus increase the likelihood of customer satisfaction.
