ABSTRACT

Projects face hurdles ranging from cost overruns, inefficiency, delays, compromised quality and ineffectiveness in meeting set objectives. The main threat to a project are mainly the expected and unexpected risks. Diligent project management dictates that all risks involved are identified, managed, controlled, mitigated or avoided to ensure a project succeeds. Women groups are mainly composed on interest groups whose background in project and risk management knowledge, skills and experience may be below expecations. This compromises successful project completion. Members of such groups like in Katulani Ward get the projects with good intentions but they fail to materialize due to poor risk management. The study sought to fill the gap by establishing the effect of risk management practices on completion of women group projects in Katulani Ward, Kitui County.
