This research, based on literature review, identifies important project success factors that are
clustered under various categories. All project success factors are evaluated by project managers.
In order to identify variations among success factors, domestic and international projects are compared. Data is
collected from project managers of Pakistani, German and other international companies operating in Pakistan.
Results show significant variances in the ranking of factors. The main
differences were observed in the national factors where their importance is
more in the foreign projects than domestic projects. Results suggest that
project managers of international companies shall pay attention to national
environment factors for greater chances of getting project success.
