|Abstract: ||Purpose – Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of projects is a very important aspect of project execution and
management. This is because proper M&E practices have a significant effect on the successful delivery of
projects. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of project M&E practices on construction project
Design/methodology/approach – Structured questionnaires were used to solicit the views of project
professionals in the Ghanaian construction industry. The questions were developed through critical review
of literature and complemented with a pilot interview on the subject. This paper utilized a partial least
square–structural equation modeling (PLS–SEM) to establish the impact of project M&E practices
(constructs) on project success based on the hypothesis.
Findings – Results showed that M&E practices had a positive statistical significant relationship with
construction project success criteria. In addition, health and safety performance and project scope showed a
strong significant relation with M&E practice, implying that, in developing countries, these two main
constructs should be given critical attention in achieving project success.
Practical implications – The findings of this study may be useful to organizations in determining M&E
techniques that are relevant and contribute highly to project success. This may go a long way to increase
productivity and accelerate the rate of successful project delivery.
Originality/value – The application of rigorous analysis, PLS–SEM, gives a more reliable information on
M&E practices that can ensure successful delivery of construction projects.|
