MetadataShow full item record
The Ngara Park Road housing project is experiencing both a delayed completion date and cost overruns. Just 228 affordable housing units have been built by the government thus far, which raises questions about the lofty goal of 500,000 homes by 2022. The 228 apartments that have already been delivered are situated on Park Road in Ngara, Nairobi. The National Treasury claims that the dwellings are among the 1,370 units that were planned to be built on the plot of land in Ngara during the 2018/2019 fiscal year, but the bulk of them are still incomplete. Phase 1 of the project, which was supposed to be done in September 2019, and phase 2, which was supposed to be finished in June 2020, didn't reach either of these deadlines since important stakeholders weren't adequately involved in the project's funding. The purpose of this study was to ascertain if the Ngara Park Road Housing Project and the Ngara Park Road Project will be completed depending on how stakeholders were involved. The study's objectives were to examine how stakeholders' involvement in project identification, implementation, planning, and monitoring and evaluation affect project performance of the Ngara Park.The system, stakeholder, stewardship, and ladder of involvement theories served as the foundation for the research. A descriptive survey research design was used. The study's target demographic was the Park Road housing project, and participants included 250 beneficiaries, community members, project contractors, and project managers. A cluster sampling technique was used in the investigation. The sample size was 154 respondents. Information was gathered using semi-structured questionnaires and interview schedules. Utilizing both descriptive and inferential analytic methods, quantitative data was examined using Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS Version 22). The descriptive analysis also includes percentages, averages, frequencies, and standard deviations. Data were shown in tabular or other representations. Subject matter and discourse analysis were employed to look into and comprehend qualitative information from interview sessions. The study found that projects with stakeholder engagement in project identification performed much better. The study also found that stakeholder involvement needs time for effective cost and resource planning, which helps to achieve good project performance; Ngara housing project's efficacy is increased by the proposal planning procedure, as does financial contribution; the Housing Project had a proper project plan and project identifying includes being able at the reduced ranks of the participatory staircase to play a significant role in project identification. The multiple regression model indicated that there was a significant relationship between project identification and project performance (p≤0.05); there was a significant relationship between project planning and project performance (p≤0.05); there was a significant relationship between project implementation and project performance (p≤0.05) and that there was a significant relationship between project monitoring and project performance (p≤0.05).According to the report, the Ngara Park Road Housing Project performs better when stakeholders are involved. According to the report, project managers should make sure that stakeholders are involved in many elements of a project. In order to guarantee key and personal commitment of stakeholders to their commitments, project managers should implement procedures that make signing of stakeholders as comprehensive as feasible.
