Abstract

Due to the consequences of the pandemic caused by the new coronavirus, home office has been adopted by companies to enable the continuity of their activities in an emergency and preventive feature. A survey has been conducted through interviews with ten project managers from multinational IT companies, in order to analyse and understand how project management processes are performed during the development of software projects in home office format. Impacts were identified in different aspects, positively and negatively, in the project management processes. Concerning software development teams, it was possible to observe that the greatest impact is related to communication and start using online tools for daily activities. We have also learned that there are differences between the consequences of the home office and consequences of the pandemic. And there are permanent changes and lessons learned during the management in pandemic.
