Project success is influenced by many factors. Some are primary drivers of project success, others secondary. However, these secondary factors may be no less important to understand and learn from than the primary factors. In addition, project success drivers are often qualitative and subjective, eluding analysis through traditional statistical methods. This paper presents a method that analyses the influence and nature of primary and lower order project success drivers. A case study

ABSTRACT $%675$&7 Project success is influenced by many factors. Some are primary drivers of project success, others secondary. However, these secondary factors may be no less important to understand and learn from than the primary factors. In addition, project success drivers are often qualitative and subjective, eluding analysis through traditional statistical methods. This paper presents a method that analyses the influence and nature of primary and lower order project success drivers. A case study illustrates the usefulness of this analysis and the additional understanding gained from including lower order success drivers in the analysis. The method extends existing work that has been restricted to primary drivers.
