Critical success factors (CSFs) have been defined as characteristics, conditions or variables that can have a significant impact on the success of a project when properly sustained, maintained or managed. Different studies have identified different CSFs, and a lack of consensus of opinion among researchers on the criteria for judging project success and the factors which influence that success has been cited as a problem. It has in fact been suggested that there is no such thing as absolute success in a project, only perceived success. Architects, for example, usually place emphasis on the aesthetic aspects of a building, while engineers usually focus on the structural aspects.
