EXAMINING THE DIFFERENT FACTORS OF THE MID-TERM PERFORMANCE OF DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN VERY POOR COUNTRIES
The main purpose of this paper is to examine the factors of performance in the development projects of the very poor countries in general and in particular in the context of Burkina Faso. It is about the identification of the internal and external factors that explain the level of mid-term performance of the development projects. The methodology is focused on a quantitative approach with a limited sample of 35 respondents due to some professional and technical problems. The research results show, first, that there are two internal factors to project management namely the planning variable and the Human resources management variable that positively and significantly influence mid-term performance of development projects in Burkina Faso. Second, with con identified external factors, the variable environment or area of project intervention influences positively and significantly the mid-term performance of development projects in Burkina Faso. The recommendation is that these factors should be considered by development project managers and governmental authorities.
Keywords: Mid-term performance, Project, Development Project, World Bank, Burkina Faso.
