DELPHI SURVEY: Effort Estimation Model for BPM projects…Let's determine a rating scale for Cost Drivers!

Submitted by matteo.forconi on Fri, 2012-03-16 12:22

The study unit-of-analysis of this research are the “Business Process Modeling projects”. We consider with this term “any modeling initiative that could be focused on the whole enterprise or on a specific area”.
Accurately estimating the cost of Business Process Modeling projects is one of the most desired capabilities by Project Managers.The final purpose of this research will be the implementation of an Effort Estimation Model for BPM projects, valid tool for Project Management’s initiatives.
Recent studies have been leaded by a group of researchers from the Queensland University of Technology on “Critical Success Factors of B.P.M.”. They have identified fundamental and critical success factors that apply to all BPM projects. According to the protagonist of these studies, critical success factors of BPM could perfectly act as Cost Drivers for a Cost Estimation Model. Unfortunately neither a rating scale for these CSFs has been determined, nor a detailed quantitative impact on BPM projects was identified.
Hence, in this Delphi survey exercise we need your help to determining a rating scale for each Cost Driver, depending on your personal experience in passed BPM projects.
Below given are the links from where you can download the survey forms and detailed instruction for the same.

  1. Access to the link, download the .doc, fill the presentation form, read the instructions:                 
  2. Access to the link, download the .xls, replace the red values with your estimated weights:        
  3. Send both the files by email to

Looking forward to your precious support. Thanks.
