Abstract: The impact of varying magnitude of requirement volatility on project performance parameters like schedule, effort, etc. has been well investigated in the literature. However, there is a lack of evidence of how pattern of change of requirements can influence project management practices and project performance. In order to address the gap, here using system dynamics, researchers investigate the impact of different resource allocation strategies on project quality under two experimental patterns of requirement volatility. Findings indicate variation in quality metrics depending upon the experimental scenario, thereby suggesting the need to adopt pattern-dependent contextual project management practices.
