24 : Issue 24 - (Apr-Jun 2017) ( 2017-06 )

Abstract:

The main purpose of the study was to assess the factors influencing project performance among Kenyan Universities in Kisumu County. The study used Contingency Theory, Complexity Theory and Regulatory Fit Theory (RFT). The study used a combination of cross-sectional and descriptive survey. This particular study, 36 project managers and 327 employees were drawn. The study employed stratified random sampling technique in which the researcher sub-divided his population of 3 public and private universities in the region. Purposive sampling technique was used to draw a sample from population. In this study the sample consisted 30% of the target population. This study employed the use of questionnaires for project manager. A value of Cronbach alpha above 0.70 was used as a reasonable test of scale reliability. This entailed the use of mode, percentages for descriptive statistics and chi square for inferential statistics. Multiple regression models enabled the researcher to test the hypothesis stated. The study found that planning and management support have a positive and significant effect on project performance. There is also need for highly qualified personnel for the project and employees that are committed to working for the project. It is therefore imperative for project planners to define the project objectives.
