Abstract

The study examined barriers and key criteria for enhancing strategic project management application in public research organisations in Nigeria. Given the economic and social challenge in Research and Development (R and D) projects, a multi-methodology consisting of quantitative and qualitative analysis was employed. A total of 213 questionnaires were used and 20 senior practitioners interviewed. The findings revealed that organisational culture such as employee’s behaviour, lack of knowledge in strategic project management (SPM), organisations routines were the significant barriers to the application of SPM. Strategies for enhancing SPM application were identified to include: proper definition of projects, use project teams approach, stakeholder’s involvement enhanced, using the problem-driven-approach to select projects and increased employee’s motivation.
