Defence industry projects : investigating the impact of major project manager attributes on stakeholder relationships and project success

Mazur, Alicia K. (2014) Defence industry projects : investigating the impact of major project manager attributes on stakeholder relationships and project success. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis identifies attributes, skills and behaviours that major project managers require for stakeholder relationships competence and project success within a major project environment. It develops valid and reliable measures of internal and external stakeholder relationships competence, tests a complex conceptual model and explores the effectiveness of the QUT Executive Masters of Complex Project Management and Strategic Procurement in developing major project managers' stakeholder relationships competence. Implications of this thesis are for government and industry in identifying factors associated with major project success, as this will lead to better major project outcomes potentially resulting in time and monetary savings of years and billions of dollars.
