MORAES, Renato de Oliveira and KRUGLIANSKAS, Isak. The IT project manager in organizations with differentiated levels of maturity. Prod. [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.4, pp. 839-850. Epub Aug 21, 2012. ISSN 0103-6513. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65132012005000060.
The project management literature recognizes the importance of the project manager in the performance of projects. This article presents the results of a survey on the relation between IT project managers and project performance. The results showed that the relation of the project manager with projects performance is modified according to the level of project management maturity of the organization. In lower maturity level organizations, the relation between the project manager's profile and projects performance is stronger. This suggests that organizations that encourage project management maturity create conditions for their projects performances to be less dependent on the individual actions of project managers.
