This research seeks to analyze the project success factors related to project managers' traits. The context of the research entails a 'united nations' type of organization. Critical success factors from previous recent studies were adopted for this research. Nineteen factors were adopted and a survey methodology approach was followed. Sixty six participants completed the survey. Exploratory factor analysis results revealed the existence of three constructs: project manager engagement traits, education, and experience. The total number of factors representing these three constructs after the factor reduction exercise is 12. We conclude by discussing the results and by provide limitations to our research study and recommendations for future research.
