Abstract

Project Management (PM) has become popular as an important management concept that is driving the economic development agenda of nations and corporate organizations are also using it to drive their business objectives successfully. As a result, it is quite worrying for a country like Ghana or an organization to adopt these important concepts in the Project Management Methodology (PMM) and still register a high level of project failure. This study aims to look at the factors of project management methodologies that are more likely to lead to project success in Ghana. The work is underpinned by the Capability Maturity Model and extant literature to know the factors of project management methodologies that are likely to lead to project success in Ghana. The researchers thus proposed a model that can be used to assess the success of projects in Ghana with empirical data.
