Effect of Resource Control on Performance of Coffee Projects in Rwanda: A Case of Sustainable Growers Rwanda

Jean D'amour Nzarulinda, Dr. Patrick Mulyungi

Abstract: Rwanda, as a developing country is faced with a myriad of project management challenges of both technical and non-technical. First and foremost, the numbers of agricultural failure projects exceed that of successful projects (MINAGRI, 2015). One of the highlighted major causes attributed to that failure is the inability to manage and control project resources as usually this leads to project delay and cost overruns. With an attempt to find solutions to this persisting problem, this study aimed to assess the effect of resource control on performance of coffee project in Rwanda. The general objective of this study was to analyze the effect of resources control on performance of coffee projects in Rwanda. Specifically, the researcher wanted to assess the effect of financial resources control on performance of Sustainable growers Rwanda; to analyze the effect of human resources control on performance of Sustainable Growers Rwanda and to determine the effect of physical resources control on performance of Sustainable Growers Rwanda. The study adopted descriptive research design where quantitative and qualitative methods in data collection and analysis were used. The target population was 30 employees of Sustainable Growers Rwanda, and all of them were considered as sample size. The primary data was collected by using self-administered questionnaires and structured interview. The questionnaire was consisted of close ended questions. Before analyzing data; errors were first identified and eliminated as far as possible in order to enable the researcher to cross examine the relationship between the questions and the corresponding responses so as to ensure accuracy, consistency, and uniformity. This was done immediately after administering the questionnaires to guard against omission. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to process data after their collection. Data were presented in form of tables in order to produce the meaningful results. The research findings showed that under financial resource control, project budget control, project Cash control and procurement control were all confirmed to play a big role in coffee projects performance in Sustainable Growers Rwanda and there was strong positive correlation between those indicators and coffee project performance. Under human Resource control, the research findings showed that the process of recruitment, tasks accomplishment and project staff appraisal were all confirmed to influence project performance in Sustainable Growers Rwanda and they were positively correlated with higher significance on coffee project performance. The research findings showed that in physical resource control the indicators project machines control, project tools control and project equipment control were all confirmed to influence coffee project performance and they were positively correlated and significant to the coffee project performance in Sustainable Growers Rwanda.
