dc.description.abstract Software Export industry is a booming industry presently in Sri Lanka. Over the past couple of years, there was a shift from the multi-national companies' dominance to an increasing number of the newly established fast-growing software export companies. Sri Lanka is a favorable offshore destination in terms of high technical literacy rate, favorable investment climate, software quality and satisfactory infrastructure. Software exporting is highly competitive industry among countries like India, China, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. Therefore Sri Lanka should practice appropriate quality management strategies with latest software development methodologies to compete with other software export countries all over the world. Numerous of researches and international quality standards are available with regards to general project management. The objectives of this exercise are to identify the different quality factors applicability for SCRUM software development and identify relationships with SCRUM project performance and also to recommendations to improve project performance in terms of software quality. In this research first the common quality factors practicing with SCRUM software development in software export companies were identified and based on that, a conceptual model was built to analyze the relationships. The empirical data was drawn from 19 SCRUM software development practicing companies and analyzed using mainly with descriptive analysis to identify the nature of data and statistical analysis for testing the hypothesis. Also factor analysis used to validate the research constructs and Cronbatch Alpha was used for reliability Analysis. In this study quality factors Functionality, Reliability, Usability, Efficiency, Maintainability and Portability critically assessed with SCRUM Software Project Performance. The Findings of the research indicates that there is a positive relationship existing between quality factors Efficiency, Usability and Reliability with Project Performance. Based on above results recommendations to improve SCRUM software development methodology with quality factors was derived. en_US
