Abstract: Project effort is a main concern on software organizations. The project budget is derived from project effort which in turn is based on the software engineers’ effort cost. Project manager is responsible for planning and controlling this effort estimation. Some researches relate how project manager can influence the project success, specially when considering project manager personality. This research aims to evaluate the influence between project manager personality and teamwork behavior over project’s effort deviation. A case study was performed with 65 real projects collected from a software company dedicated to develop software projects for its local government. Unlike previous researches our results show no statistically significant influence of project manager personality, assesed by MBTI test, over project’s effort deviation. However, our results show the project manager teamwork behavior, assesed by Belbin’s BTRSPI, has a statistically significant influence on the project’s ef fort deviation. (More)
