Organizational Sample Size
% of people included: 54
% of projects/units included: 42
Org Scope Description: Based on the number of basic units in each subgroup, five projects are included in scope. Two projects were selected from the Technical Complexity A subgroup, one from the B subgroup; these represent software only projects. One project was selected from the system & software projects, and one project from the system, software, and hardware projects,
Only the system, software & hardware subgroup uses suppliers.
