Research on information systems development methodologies (ISDM) adoption has been widely undertaken to highlight the experience of developed countries. Studies concerned with the status of ISDM in developing economies including the factors that influence and motivate their use, current trends, difficulties, and barriers to adoption are lacking. This paper explores these issues in a developing economy, namely Oman, and proposes an ISDM adoption decision model using analytical hierarchy process analysis informed by a survey and Delphi consultation. The findings from the survey reveal a lack of knowledge of ISDM amongst Omani Information Systems developers and the reliance on ad-hoc software development methods. Conversely, analyzed data reveals a trend whereby a majority of Omani organizations are gradually moving towards increased ISDM adoption and deployment. This has motivated the development of an adoption decision model to assist software companies to select the right ISDM adapted to their organizational needs in Oman. This model has a generic dimension and can be adapted to other socio-organizational contexts.
