Resumo


Este artigo procura identificar quais são os principais fatores que contribuem para o agravamento de projetos de Sistemas de Informação. A identificação desses fatores ocorreu por meio de uma revisão bibliográfica sobre projetos intermináveis ou em condição de agravamento, analisando essa literatura em relação ao ambiente cultural brasileiro. As principais teorias que explicam o agravamento são analisadas e comparadas.
