The primary purpose of this study is to determine the critical success factors in construction projects, especially in the dam construction project in Myanmar. The major objective is to analyze the managers’ efficiencies to handle the knowledge area management, especially in dam construction projects and to examine the factors that ensure project success for a development project based on the empirical evidence of project practitioners on the target survey area. The percentage frequency distribution method and relative importance index (RII) method are used to figure out the critical success factors in this dissertation. This dissertation is organized with five chapters. The contribution of development project to Myanmar economy is a main reason why I have to study this topic and some of the problem statements of study are described in the introduction of this dissertation. In the literature review, this dissertation will discuss the critical success factors of project management and the methods to figure out those factors which had been published and figured out by the researchers. The methods which are used to collect the data and figure out the success factors are described in the methodology chapter. In the data analysis and conclusion chapters, the critical success factors of targeted survey area and the reason why those factors become success factors are described. This study was conducted in Myanmar and five dam construction projects served as subjects in a study designed to investigate. This study indicates that ten critical success factors of those five dam construction projects are very important to success those projects. On the basis of the results of this research, it can be concluded that the critical success factors which were figured out from the five dam construction projects should be used and consider deeply to ensure the success for the further dam construction projects in Myanmar as the nature of the dam construction project throughout the Myanmar are more or less same.
