Nayigiziki Ngendo Olivier
Abstract: The general aim of this study is to assess the impact of project planning towards success of electricity projects in Electricity Access Rollout Project (EARP) during the period from 2015 up to 2019. The specific objectives are: assess the effects of leading activities towards success of electricity projects in EARP; to analyze the effects of time management towards success of electricity projects in EARP and to determine the effects of financial facilities towards success of electricity projects in EARP». The researcher states the problems that the majority of developing countries do not have long term policies on the development and support of electricity projects, which proceed to be undertaken without the necessary electricity planning and policy. As consequence, electricity projects development follows an unplanned route, with no clear association to national power master plans. The researcher develops related theory of Resource Based Project Planning Theory. The sample size of 180 respondents as employees of EDCL selected from total population as 327 employees of EDCL, where research tools are questionnaire, interview and documentation techniques. Therefore, the data were tested through SPSS. The regression squared-R2 = 0.969 and regression squared adjusted-R2 = 0.975, show the goodness of fit of the estimated model. Up to 96.9 % of long-run appreciation in success of Electricity Access Rollout Project is influenced by changes in leading activities; time management; and financial facilities. Therefore, the researcher can conclude by saying that the research hypotheses were tested; verified and then they are confirmed referring to the statistical (regression analysis) findings. Index terms: Project Planning; Leading Activities; Time Management; Financial Facilities and Success of Electricity Projects.
