Project management in the international aid sector: the perspective of Italian NGOs
In recent years, the project management field has received increasing attention, in terms of both practical implementation and research. However, unlike other sectors, project management practice in the field of international humanitarian aids seems to be neglected. In this context, the current paper illustrates an empirical study on international development projects performed by Italian non-governmental organizations. The aim of the paper is to investigate the use of PM tools in humanitarian aid projects and the relationship between critical success factors and project success. The necessary data were gathered through a questionnaire and statistical methods were subsequently implemented for the data analysis.
