Abstract

The research presented in this article considers how residual risk impacts project performance and: (1) evaluates the impact of specific categories of residual risks (actor, technology, task, and structure) on project performance; and (2) demonstrates the mediation role of categorical problems caused by residual risk on project performance. Data from 92 projects analyzed using partial least squares found support for mediation, and not direct effects between: (1) actor project problems and the effects of actor residual risk; (2) task project problems and the effects of task residual risk; and (3) technology project problems and the effects of technology residual risk on information systems development (ISD) project performance.
