dc.description.abstractThere are determinants that influence the contractors' involvement that are paramount to performance of constructed road projects. This research sought to assess the project management determinant s and performance of constructed road projects in Nairobi Metropolitan Region Kenya. This study was anchored by the following specific objectives to determine the effects of stakeholder participation and performance of constructed road projects in Nairobi Metropolitan Region Kenya; to explore the effects of Management Skills and performance of constructed road projects in Nairobi Metropolitan Region Kenya, to assess the effects of organization structure and performance of constructed road projects in Nairobi Metropolitan Region Kenya, and to establish the effects of technological innovations and performance of constructed road projects in Nairobi Metropolitan Region Kenya. Moreover, the study was underpinned by the following theories: the theory of performance, expectancy theory and diffusion of innovation theory. This study adopted a framework of positivism, and a multiple regression model was used. The study adopted descriptive research design and targeted population of 201 officials. Using stratified random sampling and purposive sampling techniques 60 respondents were selected as the sample size. The findings indicated that Findings stakeholder participation has a significant positive influence on performance of constructed road projects (β=0.296;ρ<0.05). Similarly, Management skills significantly influences performance (β=0.209; ρ<0.05). Moreover, there was evidence of significant (ρ<0.05) and positive influence of Organization structure (β=0.262) and Technological innovation (β=0.307) on performance of constructed roads projects. The study concludes that project's success depends on the participation of stakeholders. This include a well-defined procedure regarding project team appointment, terms of reference, and feasibility plan of constructed road. Good management skills are needed for project management because it boosts productivity within an organization. Furthermore, positive organization's culture fosters collaboration among contractors and employee involvement. Finally, construction companies must make use of the proper technologies in order to properly execute their projects. The study recommends that construction firms should consider stakeholder involvement at all levels from project planning to implementation stages. Secondly, management should strengthen its organizing, coordinating, and leadership capabilities for the efficient execution of constructed road projects. Moreover, construction companies should have an inherent culture connected to its stakeholders in order to involve, inform, and respond to them. Finally, these firms need to adopt and employ technologies related to construction to improve on their productivity and effectiveness. The results of this study will be used by policymakers and scholars who could gain knowledge and develop policies to enhance performance.en_US
