Challenges in distributed projects (English)
Abstract [sv]

I takt med utvecklingen av av informations- och kommunikationsteknik (IKT) har det blivit alltmer vanligare att bedriva projekt på distans. Därför är denna studies syfte att undersöka hur projektmedlemmar beskriver upplevelser och erfarenheter av att delta i distribuerade projekt, samt de utmaningar som de har erfarit. Studien utgår ifrån en kvalitativ forskningsmetod och baseras på data insamlad från 9 öppen-strukturerade intervjuer. Datan har sedan analyserats med hjälp av en induktiv och tematisk analysmetod. Vidare visar den här rapporten att studiens respondenter har erfarenhet av att hantera utmaningar inom kommunikation, kultur och uppgiftslösningar när de arbetar i distribuerade projekt. Dessa utmaningar behandlar framförallt mänskliga behov, såsom gemenskap och motivation, men även hur dessa kan påverkas av de förutsättningar (till exempel beroendet och användningen av IKT) som råder inom distribuerade projekt.

Abstract [en]

In line with the development of information and communication technology (ICT), it has become increasingly common to undertake distributed projects. Therefore, this study's purpose is to investigate how project members describe their experiences of participating in distributed projects, as well as the challenges that they have been through. The study is based on a qualitative research method and is based on data collected from 9 open-structured interviews. The data has then been analyzed using an inductive and thematic analysis method. Furthermore, this report shows that the respondents of the study have experience in managing communication, culture and task challenges when working in distributed projects. These challenges address primarily human needs, such as community and motivation, but also how these can be influenced by the conditions (eg dependence and use of ICT) that exist in distributed projects
