The number of software projects has increased in recent years due to technological advancements. In addition to the other factors such as the qualifications of the staff, budget, leadership, the success of the projects also highly depends on how they are managed. There are various software project management models such as Waterfall, Prototype, Spiral, Incremental, Iterative and Agile, which have been applied in different types of software projects. Each has advantages and disadvantages over the other. Hence, any of them does not have absolute superiority over the others. Therefore, it is important to determine the most suitable one. In addition, depending on the sector, the conditions change and a solution methodology for the new problem environment is required. One of the biggest sectors, the banking sector, is specifically considered in this study. Conforming to the multi-criteria structure of the selection problem, Interval-Valued Neutrosophic Analytic Hierarchy Process (IVN-AHP) which is capable of providing solutions in fuzzy multi-criteria decision making environment is utilized in this study with the pairwise comparisons provided by the experts in the sector. Finally, the alternative software project management models are ranked, and the best one is obtained.
