dc.description.abstractThere is a high rate of project failure due to inadequate planning or implementation. This indicates that Kenya's national government and its numerous county administrations have a strong incentive to see that long-term national development projects are completed. The healthcare facilities in Machakos County has undergone significant upgrades as a consequence of county government efforts. Many of the projects, though, are having problems getting off the ground. Due to a lack of finance, time, or political will to see them through, numerous proposed health projects never leave the drawing board. The general objective of the study sought the relationship between critical success factors and implementation of projects by the department of health and emergency services in Machakos County, Kenya. The objectives of the study were; to examine how stakeholder involvement influences the implementation of health and emergency services projects, to establish how monitoring and evaluation influences the implementation of health and emergency services projects, to analyze how resource allocation influences the implementation of health and emergency services projects and to determine how project leadership influences the implementation of health and emergency services projects in Machakos County, Kenya. The theories that guide the study were; institutional theory, resource-based view theory, realistic evaluation theory and stakeholder theory. The study adopted a descriptive research design. The target population of the study were 43 respondents (5 project managers and 38 team members). Primary data was collected by use of questionnaires and interview schedules were issued to all the project managers and members of the team. A total of 6 respondents were used to test the pilot study. The regression model summary findings revealed that coefficient of adjusted R2 was 0.623. This means that 62.3% of the variance in project performance was due to stakeholder participation, monitoring and evaluation, resource allocation, and project leadership. Also, the findings revealed that stakeholder involvement, monitoring and evaluation, resource allocation and project leadership significantly influence the implementation of projects in department of healthcare since the p-value was less than 0.05. The study concludes that involvement of stakeholders ensured projects are monitored and evaluated hence minimal resources are misuse. The project leaders plan and communicate vision where project tasks were shared according to qualifications. The study recommends that project managers and key stakeholders should be given a greater degree of responsibility for defining and attaining the goals of the project. The project managers should ensure transparent financial reporting, thorough documentation of all financial activities, and reasonable budgeting throughout the project.en_US
