Abstract:We examine key factors that influence the productivity of large business information system application development. A survey method has been selected focusing on large business information system developers in eleven organisations in Hong Kong. The purposes of this study are to identify those factors which are considered by practitioners to have the potential to enhance productivity and also to identify the factors actually adopted in everyday practice. The research indicates that significant factors which affect large business information system development productivity include creating good developmental environments, employing capable and committed IT developers, sound project management and managing IT department activities effectively. We believe that the findings are universal and may be useful to any organisation seeking to improve the productivity of its system development.
