Abstract—The Ministry of Higher Education invests a significant sum of amounts in projects of the higher learning institutions but the success rate is still limited. Majority project continues to fail in achieving their objectives even with a good resource of project management and ultimately get scrapped. The main goal of this study is identification of project failure factors by an examination of higher learning institutional projects. The data were collected from projects of higher learning institutions of Saudi Arabia by conducting interview and distribution of structured questionnaire among project managers. The result showed that procedure for processing of project approval and release of funds has an unfavorable impact on the development project such as poor control, delayed project implementation, and checking system etc. In the same way, when projects are designed to poorly be short of the major characteristics of planning such as objectivity, feasibility, appraisal and detail cost forecasting. Therefore the project deficient a quality management system and bring about the main reasons for project failure. The solution requires a method to evaluate and identify the various significant factors that causes project failure and their mutual association. The validation of the conceptual solution has led to the conclusion that a systematic and holistic approach would improve the overall success rates of project and a project manager would be notified of problems during all phases of project life cycle.

Index Terms—Project management, project failure factors, higher learning institutions, risk factors, project planning.
