Abstract

Abstract—The success of a software project requires the work of highly capable and motivated individuals as well as a strong and capable leader. Yet, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that lack of quality leadership in a project is often a cause of that project’s ultimate failure. Selecting the most suitable individual to lead a project is not an easy task. In this research we present a new method for selecting a project manager, by formally modeling leadership and cultural characteristics. The characteristics sought by the organisation and of each candidate manager are modeled using an approach known as profile theory. We show how to apply the methodology within an organisational context.
