DETERMINING THE CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS OF PROJECT RISK THAT AFFECT THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF MUD ARCHITECTURE BUILDING IN YEMEN
This paper aims to determine the critical success factors (CSFs) of project risk that affect the sustainable development of mud architecture buildings in Yemen. A review of the related literature established the relationship between CSFs and project risk Management; the relationship was further contextually tailored using a pilot study and presented as a hypothesized template. The targeted population in this study was 260 projects of mud buildings implemented in three selected areas of Wadi Hadramout city, namely Seiyun, Tarim, and Shibam. This study utilized a stratified sampling method and divided the population into three strata as represented by the geographical location within the main cities in Wadi. The modelling aspect of the study was performed using the structural formula of partial least squares (PLS-SEM, v3.2.7). The outcome of this study supported the hypotheses that suggested a significant relationship between two CSFs (leadership and resources) factors and Project Risk Management of mud architecture building in achieving sustainable development. A direct relationship was also found between leadership factors and resources factors while the other two factors (technical factors and project management factors) do not have these relationships. This study encourages companies in Wadi Hadramout to recognize the importance of CSFs of Project RM to be creative and achieve sustainable development.
