The research of Nan and Harter (2009) suggests that there is a “beneficial range of budget pressure” (p. 636) resulting in improved software development efficiency. Does this perspective make sense to you? How might this concept be realized within IT department management plans? Discuss the risks and benefits of working to find this ‘beneficial range’.
