Description

The dissertation examines the issues related to the successful implementation of construction projects. The prime aim is to identify which critical success factors (CSF) play a role in the implementation of construction projects and to assess them using multiple criteria assessment methods and the developed conceptual model of success factors in the implementation of construction projects.

The dissertation includes an introduction, three chapters, a summary of the results, a list of references and a list of the author’s publications on the topic of this dissertation.

The introduction discusses the research problem and the research relevance, outlines the research object, states the research aim and objectives, overviews the research methodology and the original contribution of the research, presents the practical value of the research results, and lists the defended propositions. The introduction concludes with an overview of the author’s publications and conference presentations on the topic of this dissertation.

The first two chapters narrow the problem and review the literature. Chapter 1 introduces the concepts of a construction project, success and CSF, overviews research and findings, both by Lithuanian and foreign scientists, on the implementation of construction projects, and analyses models and systems of success factors proposed by different authors. The chapter ends with conclusions and the explicit objectives of the dissertation.

Chapter 2 of the dissertation introduces the conceptual model of CSF in the implementation of construction projects. Multiple criteria assessment methods are also examined and the methods appropriate for the assessment of factors that affect the successful implementation of construction projects are selected.

Chapter 3 applies the model developed by the author and the multiple criteria methods to solve a problem, which is to assess the factors that play a role in the success of construction projects. It introduces a hierarchic system built for the assessment of factors and the weights of the factors. Such methods as the RII, the expert judgement and the AHP were employed to assess CSF; the results of the assessment by each were combined to calculate the integrated weight.

The author published six scientific articles that deal with the topic of the dissertation: two in journals listed in the Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Science, one in a peer-reviewed foreign scientific journal, one in a conference proceedings referenced in the Thomson Reuters ISI database, one in a conference proceedings of an international conference, and one in a peer-reviewed conference proceedings in Lithuania. Three presentations were given on the topic of the dissertation at conferences in Lithuania and other countries.
