This dissertation reports on a research that continues a long tradition of exploration of factors which positively influence implementation of projects. The research was based in Botswana and the empirical survey only covered project personnel employed by Botswana based organisations. The dissertation investigates and identifies the factors and goes further to analyse these factors to determine if their importance is perceived differently across private and public sectors. A literature review was carried out to identify the factors and find out what various scholarly authors have deduced about them. The presumption was then compared with the results of the survey, both of which revealed that all factors identified were crucial for project success even though some factors were deemed more important than others. The research has also shown that in both private and public sectors, it is important that management attention should be more productively focused on creating the kind of organisational environment or culture that has been shown to be conducive to successful project outcomes.
