Abstract

In today’s world, any kinds of activities are considered as a project in different context; each activity has a different characteristic and needs a specific requirement which lead to a unique outcome. Each project involves a new vision and strategy in order to achieve the main objectives decided. Project management requires new techniques and procedures due to the political competitive system of the modern world, global economy, the high competition among the produces and a high respect for the value. For any businesses by any firms, a performing business includes an investment in a successful project with the determined results planned before the commencement of the project. Robert Frese has mentioned five major factors behind the success of any business project and they are (user involvement, executive management support, and clear statement of requirements, proper planning and realistic expectations). 1 Moreover, some other authors indicated the reasons behind the failure of any projects. For instance, Field will connect failure to the failure to appreciate and determine the scope of the project.2 Hoffman pointed that project managers too often act as “process cops and report compilers and lose sight of what they’re supposed to be doing – to make sure projects are running effectively”.3 In the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, there are many companies working in the field of construction and implemented hundreds of projects in the help to build the infrastructure of the region. North Power Company is one of the leading companies of construction working in Sulaimaniyah governorate.

North Power has implemented two projects; Mawlana Park Project & Lighting Pole in Sulaimani Project. The company acknowledged its failure in Mawlana Park project and its success in Lighting Pole in Sulaimani Project.
