Abstract


Contextual factors, when aligned with internal organisational factors, may generate positive organisational related outcomes. This is an assertion that demands empirical justification in governance strategy and sustainability relationship in Kenyan context. From a survey of 196 respondents, this study investigated the moderating effect of project operating environment on the relationship between governance strategy and sustainability of Youth Empowerment Projects in Kenya. Data collected from 132 respondents were subjected to descriptive and inferential analysis, and the results of the analysis, following the three-step model for determining moderation effect proposed by Baron and Kenny (1989), showed that the relationship between governance strategy and sustainability of projects was significantly moderated by project operating environment. In addition, the results of the analysis also demonstrated the significant effect of project governance on sustainability of projects. The implication of the findings of this study is that the fit between governance strategyand contextual factors will contribute to sustainability of projects across Kenya.
