Dr Mohamed Rhaihat

Purpose The purpose of the study was to identify to what extent leadership styles and characteristics associated among project managers contribute to project success and provide recommendations on how to apply it in Moroccan companies. Research method This study is a descriptive quantitative case study to gain knowledge and used to answer the research questions in the area of leadership and project management. The main leadership styles ( transformational and transactional) and characteristics of project managers along with project success indicators are measured with a survey inspired from the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire 6S developed by Bass and Avolio in 1995. Findings Results revealed that leadership has a positive impact on project success and helps improve the overall project performance. Implications and lessons learned were explored to provide recommendations for future application in other Moroccan engineering companies. Practical implications The findings of the paper would contribute to producing a practical framework of leadership dedicated to Moroccan companies. Originality/value There is hardly any research in Morocco, which has been conducted which has surveyed how a leadership could have a positive impact on project success, and can be successfully employed in Moroccan companies.
