Purpose – Human resource development (HRD) is considered one of the most important components for the success of any project. The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of HRD activities (career development and team development) on project success by inquiring into job satisfaction.
Methodology- Data were collected from 230 respondents employed in project-based organizations by selecting a probability random sample. Multiple regression analysis was performed using SPSS.
Findings– The results indicate the existence of a positive relationship between HRD interventions (career development and team development) and project success. Moreover, the study found that job satisfaction significantly mediated the relationship between antecedents and project success. This implies that HRD is essential for the success of the project.
Practical Implications- This study will sensitize project managers to the close nexus between job satisfaction and the impact of employee training and development.
Originality: This study opens new horizons for researchers to further investigate various training and development techniques to identify their efficacy.
