中文摘要 Green management describes the construction of business, and green business strategies are the future of sustainable development; they enhance corporate performance and create profitable and sustainable competitive businesses. The operational goals for sustainability change over time and require a continuous process of completing projects related to renegotiating the trade-off between economic, environmental and social aspects. In order to manage this trade-off, project management is necessary.
In terms of information systems, an important aspect of project management is to minimize the stakeholder perception gap and match expectations between users and service providers. The purpose of this study is to investigate how ‘green components’ impact the success of IS/IT projects.
The findings show that the green IT strategies have a positive impact on management activities, reduce the stakeholder perception gap, increase user perception, and decrease uncertainty risk. Furthermore, it is found that the stakeholder perception gap can be minimized through the use of good management skills or activities, and that by reducing the stakeholder perception gap, uncertainty risk is reduced; this reduction in risk is found to further increase project performance.
