Abstract

The research about the factors that are linked to project management performance and project management success,has been developed for several years, so the literature about this subject is relatively extensive. After aliterature review about project success factors, it was found that the current research effort is mainly focused oninformation technology, engineering and software development projects, not yet on public health projects. Publichealth projects have a different focus, are concerned on providing conditions in which people can be healthy, and areessential for populations’ welfare. Their distinctive attributes justify the need of research towards the developmentof a specific model of success factors, to support top management and project managers in planning and operationalmanagement. A model of success factors would help in the identification, control and minimization of issues thatincrease the likelihood of going in the wrong direction and strengthen those that create value or increase theprobability of going successfully. It would also be useful as a tool for prediction and diagnosis in evaluatingobjectively and gradually minimize the probability of project failure, and thus assist in improving the projectperformance. This article presents a brief literature review on project management success and points out the need ofadditional research for public health projects in this area.
