RISK FACTORS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN SENEGAL
Senegal has just launched its latest economic and social policy through the Plan Sénégal Emergent (PSE). The operationalization of the PES promotes the increase of official development assistance and the implementation of development projects. Our experience in project management in Senegal tells us that the majority of development projects meeting the technical specifications exceed the initially planned deadline as well as the estimated implementation costs.
The main issues we have addressed are the risk factors in project management that impact the success or failure of development projects.
Our field research focuses on the most important players in the management of development projects in Senegal.
Our research aims to:
- Identify the risk factors of development projects in Senegal;
- Establish a risk factor classification by stakeholder;
- Establish links between risk factors and undesirable outcomes;
- Establish the impact of undesirable outcomes on the management of development projects.
We hope that the recommendations made will improve the control of risks in the management of development projects in Senegal.
