An increased failure rate of poverty eradication projects in Uganda has
become a concern of many stakeholders. This paper establishes the
relationship between stakeholder involvement and Performance of
Poverty Eradication Projects as a strategy for improving public sector
work in Uganda. Cross-sectional and operations research survey designs
were used with a study sample of 323 NAADS projects undertaken in the
28sub-counties of Mukono district. Results revealed that stakeholder
involvement positively relates with and predicts performance of poverty
eradication projects. This implies that in order to improve performance
of poverty eradication projects, stakeholders have to be highly involved
in the projects’ decision-making and other core activities. The study
recommended teamwork amongst stakeholders, efficient and effective
ways of doing work in order to improve stakeholder involvement thereby
improving performance of projects.
