IT project development is a crucial point for the success of any IT organization however delays and increasing costs jeopardize the fulfillment of the business goals. Different research studies on IT project development process confirm that one individual framework is not appropriate for all types of applications. However, reality shows that many companies choose frameworks to run their IT projects based on project type and face dissimilar problems during the execution. In this research we are presenting a framework for IT project development in a large company. The framework has been developed to improve the project IT development due to the fact that many projects have failed to deliver within defined time, cost and quality. In the large company part of our study (entitled in the paper company A) the results of IT projects success rate was significantly low. Therefore, an analysis has been done to investigate the causes for not meeting the requirements. To develop the framework we have used design science research and we have evaluated this framework within company A with project managers. The novelty in this research is that the developed framework for IT project development is based on generic Capability Maturity Model and adapted to the specific needs. The result could be applied to other large companies with similar IT needs and environment.
