To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Donald Buresh, and I am a Ph.D. student at Northcentral
University located in Prescott Valley, Arizona. The reason that I am
to you is because I would like you to participate in an internet survey
my dissertation. The topic of my dissertation is assessing agile project
management and customer satisfaction. The web site where you can find my
survey is: www.assessingagilepm.com.
The questionnaire will ask you about a software development project that
recently completed within your organization. It will take you about 15
minutes to answer the questions. The questionnaire will ask you a series
questions about the project, including whether the software product was
developed using agile-driven or plan-driven methods. If you do not know
answer, the questionnaire will ask you a series of three questions, and
based on your responses, it is smart enough to decide what software
methodology was employed. The questionnaire will then ask you other
questions about the software development project. If at any time you
not to participate in the survey, you need only exit the survey window,
your data will not be collected. When you have completed the survey,
press the appropriate button to submit your responses, and then close
All of your responses will be anonymous and all of your data will be
the strictest confidence. From your responses, it will not be possible
identify you or your organization. Since the data obtained from this
questionnaire will be used in my doctoral dissertation, the results may
possibly appear in an academic or trade publication. None of your
will ever be revealed.
Thank you for considering to participate in this survey. If you do
participate in the survey, and want to obtain a copy of my dissertation,
please do not hesitate to respond to this email, and let me know. When
degree has been granted, and the dissertation has been accepted and
published, I will be more than happy to send you an electronic copy.
thank you for your time.
