Abstract

Prior research suggests that IT project managers’ risk response behavior sometimes differs from the prescriptions in the literature. Conceptualizing performing a risk response as planned behavior, this study draws upon the theory of planned behavior (TPB) and develops a model to enrich the understanding of the relationship between perceiving risk and enacting—or not—a risk response. The model includes the TPB constructs—behavioral attitude, perceived pressure and perceived control. It also leverages the notion of ‘background factors’ in TPB that allows the inclusion of antecedents of behavioral attitude, in the present study, perceived risk of project without the risk response and perceived risk of enacting the risk response. The research design comprises three studies. Study 1 selected three specific risk responses. Study 2 elicited IT project managers’ beliefs about each risk response. Study 3 (in progress), tests the proposed model—enriched with the elicited beliefs—for each risk response.
