Abstract: Construction projects are undertaken to achieve specific objectives and the success of it is measured by the realization of the set goals including stakeholder satisfaction. Several stakeholders are involved in construction projects and depending on the environment, complexity, and procurement method adopted; stakeholders are involved at different phases of the project undertaking different tasks and duties. These stakeholders with variable influence and power, play key roles in the success or failure of project. Hence, construction projects are normally influenced by success element which can help parties reach their envisioned goals with greater proficiency. The purpose of this study was to identify the various project stakeholders, examine the roles of project stakeholders, and also examine the impact of stakeholders on construction projects, and finally to determine critical success factors leading to construction project success in Ghana. Many critical success factors such as factors related to project manager‘s performance, factors related to organization, factors related to project, and factors related to external environment which become obvious from this study would be useful to ascertain which factors impact on the success of projects. Stakeholder Management is therefore indispensable if project goals are to be achieved. The research develops on the existing performance area outlined to advance a contingency-based model for evaluating construction projects in Ghana. This research also focused on the key elements and best methods that lead to the success of project in Ghana, the exploration of likely indicators for its evaluation and the identification of the critical success factors. In an attempt to fill this research gaps, a questionnaire survey was carry out in Ashanti Region - Ghana to gather the views of construction practitioners and clients concerning the relative significance of CSFs for stakeholder management. Findings from this report showed that all selected CSFs are regarded as critical by most respondents for the success of iv stakeholder management in construction projects. The factor concerning Effective Program Time Management is considered most essential for managing stakeholders.
