Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of project planning on the performance of Community based HIV projects in Kiambu, Kenya.


Methodology: The study used descriptive survey research method and adopted stratified random sampling to identify a sample size of 151 respondents out of the target population of 249 NPOs implementing HIV projects in the 12 sub-counties in Kiambu. A structured questionnaire with closed and open-ended questions collected primary data. A pilot study to test the validity and reliability of the research instrument using Cronbach’s alpha was undertaken. The collected data was edited, cleaned and analyzed using descriptive statistics with the aid of the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS 21.0). Correlation and regression were used to determine the relationship between critical success factors and project performance of Community based HIV projects. Data was presented in tables, charts and figures.


Results: The study found that project planning had a significant and positive relationship with the performance of Community based HIV projects in Kiambu, Kenya.


Unique contribution to theory, practice and policy: Project objectives should be aligned to the organization's strategic plan, with top management allocating sufficient resources for the project and giving the project manager room to run the project.


Keywords: Project planning, performance, Community based HIV projects.
