Abstract
Within International development, ICT and it’s benefits is a fairly new way of addressing the
world’s social and economic issues. Even though a lot of actions has been made with ICT as
a tool for development the success rate is still low. This study has two major purposes:
Firstly, investigate the characteristics of expectations within ICT4D projects. Secondly,
examine how different project management methods consolidate different stakeholders. In
order to answer these questions, an empirical study was conducted, consisting of interviews
with different organizations that were active within the ICT4D community. The participants
were carefully chosen in favor of portraying a comprehensive picture of organizational

with different organizations that were active within the ICT4D community. The participants
were carefully chosen in favor of portraying a comprehensive picture of organizational
differences and analyze how these differences affected the project outcomes. Previous studies
have indicated that variables including, but not limited to, stakeholder alignment and
expectation management have had a substantial impact on the acceptance of consumer
products and have thus come to affect the design of the project management discipline.
However, there is a lack of similar studies done within the context of ICT4D, a topic where
social adaptability and engagement require a vastly different approach. Through the
incorporation of design science, management methods and developmental theories this study
aspires to shed some light on the complex nature of project management within ICT4D and
hopefully, contribute with meaningful insight on its issues (Less)
