The purpose of this study was to investigate aspects that promote project success opposed to just looking factors that promote project failure. There were six participants from two businesses in the study. The data collection was primarily gathered from document evaluations and surveys for this qualitative study. The results indicated that influence from stakeholders, the project manager that is selected, the scope planning, schedule planning, and budget planning are factors critical to promoting project success and failure. In addition, it found that stakeholders often have conflict-based relationships with project managers, and it should not be, it should be a mutual understanding between both parties. A limitation of the study was the low number of participants that participated in the survey, and the limited data sources that were used for analysis. Future work should focus on vetting the success factors and seeing how they affect other projects.
