A process used to determine critical success factors that are felt to be predictive of successful project management is described. Full-time managers who have had experience with projects were asked to generate critical success factors that they felt to be crucial to successful project implementation. Ten factors were discovered that relate well to previous theoretical formulations in the literature. In addition, these ten factors have been linked together in an interdependent quasi-sequential framework. The authors have provided the basis for developing a behavioral instrument to be used as a diagnostic for assessing the status of any project, as determined by the ten-factor model.
