- Master Thesis 
This thesis attempts to acquire insight in IT project management both from a technical and a managerial perspective. It studies the technical methods of agile software development, which are popular in software development, but also look at the need of keeping a PSO perspective, i.e. being aware of people and organization development, as well as system development. It is a case study on the Portal Project at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH), an ongoing project which was initiated in 2008 and aims to deliver a new operation portal integrating all electronic tools and information for students, researchers, and administrative staff at the school. The project is applying a light version of Scrum development, while maintaining a PSO perspective. Yet it also raises a question whether using milestones should be combined with Scrum would improve the PSO perspective even more without interfering with Scrum’s efficient development practices.
