Factors Affecting Project Performances: A Comparison Between USA and Thailand

This study examines how the differences in cultures between two nations (Thailand and USA) mitigate the ways organizations employ Project Management Tools, Project Management Practices, and Project Management Support and eventually affect the different levels of project performance (Individual, Team, and Project). Although Thais and Americans have a common core of values such as freedom of speech, capitalism, and independence, both countries are very different in attitudes toward time, business cultures, and concepts of authority. These different traits may lead to different organizational decisions when employing project management resources, so-called project management (PM) success factors in this study. The influence of three success factors (1) project management tools, (2) project management best practices, and (3) managerial support on the performance of individual, team, and project performance was measured. Confirmatory factor analysis and SEM were used to purify measurements for project management success factors (tools, practices, and support) and test the hypotheses.
