Released as a article-journal .



The success of System Development (SD) projects largely depends on individuals within the team who are able to collaborate effectively. We opted to develop our own survey instrument using the Delphi methodology based on prior literature. Delphi methodology is a technique designed as a group communication process, which aims to achieve an informed judgment with consensus on a particular topic. A panel of SD experts, certified project managers, and project management trainers were selected. Four rounds of review using the Delphi method have been effective in refining the survey items to achieve expert consensus. Results and discussion are provided in preparation for the empirical phase. A follow-up study is in progress to test the hypotheses and provide the empirical results. Keywords: Delphi methodology in project management (PM), Delphi methodology in system development (SD) projects, effective collaboration, familiarity with organizational privacy policy, interpersonal trust building, knowledge sharing, information system (IS) projects.
