Nine factors based on repetition/ number of occurrences in literature review are considered which impact the project success the most.

This paper attempts to provide a connection between various CSFs and project success. The purpose of this paper is to present a retrospective on how project success is affected by certain factors. Project management is a driver of organisational strategy hence this paper focuses on CSFs from Project Management angle. Every project manager dreams and works hard for his project to be successful. Hence knowing and understanding of project success factors is of vital importance for a project manager. This study will provide a framework of Project management CSFs to project managers.
