ABSTRACT

This study examines attitudes and feelings of managers and professionals of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) project management teams in order to complete the assignment. Especially, relationships between factors, such as communication, internal work motivation, general satisfaction, internal work motivation and job involvement for both groups are analyzed by using a framework and empirical analyses for the survey data from 1,678 managers and professionals working in a collaborative environment for Japanese software houses. The results of the research model using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) show that internal work motivation, and job involvement are highly related to their satisfaction for both groups. However, each group feels differently on a relationship between communication and internal work motivation. The manager regards communications are highly related to internal motivation, while professionals do not feel the same way.
