Key Success Factors in Project Management from the Perspective of Organisation’s Project Maturity – Research Results

Magdalena Dolata


Identification of key success factors is of significant importance for the smooth management of projects and this phenomenon has been explored by numerous studies. However, a cognitive gap remains regarding the strength of the relationship between key success factors and the level of project maturity. The aim of the article is to identify key success factors in project management in the basic units of local government in Poland and to verify the extent to which these factors depend on the degree of project maturity of the organization. The article is based on the assumption that a link between project maturity and key success factors in project management exists. The starting point of the study was the specificity of project maturity of an organisation from the perspective of project management excellence. The relationship between these factors and levels of project maturity of the surveyed units was verified, which allowed to identify factors having a significant impact on the level of excellence in project management in the organisation. Research covered 1,900 basic local government units in Poland. The article presents research results in dynamic terms covering two periods, 2010–2012 and 2016–2018. The research procedure was based on a standardized questionnaire with unit scale responses, and brought quantitative results that would allow drawing general conclusions and findings.
