Abstract

Good project management at the early stages of a project (the “front-end”) has been found to provide
potentially significant opportunities for eliminating, or reducing, several problems that prevent the
achievement of project success. Front-end project management is particularly relevant in developing
countries where the achievement of project success often poses a special challenge to project managers due
to inherent factors of uncertainty and unpredictability in the operating environment of projects. This paper
presents an operating framework for achieving project success in developing countries through the
implementation of front-end project management. Factors influencing project management at the front end
are discussed. Strategies for applying front-end project management to projects in developing countries are
also outlined.
