Abstract
The construction industry is the major sector where developers are investing a huge amount of budget. The industry has complexity in its nature because of a large number of stakeholders. Poor stakeholder management can lead to many serious problems in construction projects. The aim of this research is to study stakeholders’ management aspects related to project success: in Gondar City. A mixed research design was employed. Together primary and secondary sources of data were used. Interview was used to strengthening the questionnaire and for the framework validation. Purposive sampling was used to select the sample. The analysis was done by SPSS v. 20. Descriptive statistics which include percentages, graphs, and tables were used to present the data. Factor analysis was used to group factors in order of strength and to eliminate variables with low variance. The finding indicates that project success can be achieved by properly implementing of critical success factors of stakeholder management because it has a positive strong correlation to productivity, cost, and time performance of a project and in reverse, barrier factor of stakeholder management has a negative strong correlation to productivity, cost and time performance of a project. The study concludes that critical success factor for stakeholder management in construction projects was reviewed leading to the identification of twenty barrier factors and thirty critical success factors. The main recommendations of this research are the management team in the Gondar city should use the proposed framework for managing the construction stakeholders for project success.
