dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of selected factors on implementation of capital expenditure projects of Airtel Kenya Limited. The research questions are: how does the resource allocation affect the implementation of capital expenditure projects, how does the leadership competence affect the implementation of capital expenditure projects, and how does the effective communication affect the implementation of capital expenditure projects. This study adopted a descriptive survey research design. The population of the study was composed of 83 top – level managers, middle – level managers, and supervisors of Airtel Kenya Limited in Nairobi County. Stratified sampling technique was adopted to select a sample size of 66. The study primary data was collected using closed ended structured questionnaires. Data was analyzed for descriptive statistics and inferential statistics using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Findings were presented using tables and figures. The findings of the resource allocation indicated that 61% of the variance could be explained by the variables (leadership style, project flexibility, and project visibility). Thus, for the regression coefficient the equation for resource allocation was: Resource Allocation ꞊ ̶ 0.531 ̶ 0.073 Leadership Style + 0.707 Project Flexibility + 0.373 Project Visibility. Therefore, the regression equation indicated that leadership style, project flexibility, and project visibility had a positive and insignificant influence on implementation of capital expenditure projects. The findings of leadership competence indicated that 64% of the variance could be explained by the variables (managerial competence, intellectual competence, and emotional competence). Thus, the regression equation for leadership competence was: Leadership Competence ꞊ ̶ 0.094 + 0.438 Managerial Competence + 0.209 Intellectual Competence + 0.264 Emotional Competence. Therefore, regression equation indicated that managerial competence, intellectual competence, and emotional competence had a positive and significant influence on implementation of capital expenditure projects. The findings of effective communication indicated that 78.4% of the variance could be explained by the variables (communication relationship, communication behavior, communication design). Thus, the regression coefficient for effective communication was: Effective Communication ꞊ 0.534 + 0.412 Communication Relationship + 0.420 Communication Behavior + 0.052 Communication Design. Therefore, the regression equation indicated that communication relationship, communication behavior, and communication design had a positive and significant influence on implementation of capital expenditure projects. Thus, on resource allocation, the study concluded that as the project schedule changes, the resource plan must also be flexible enough to adjust as these changes occur. On leadership competence, the study concluded that as for the top managers in the information and telecommunication industry, their IQ, and their ability to bring the project to a successful conclusion, especially implementation part, relies heavily on their critical analysis abilities and judgment, their cognitive ability, and their strategic vision. On effective communication, the study concluded that, a successful project manager can only maximize the effectiveness of communication within the team by being prepared to lead by example. Thus, a leader has to be present, and be prepared to communicate with all stakeholders at their respective levels. Therefore, on resource allocation the study recommended that resource allocation should help to control all the workload. This, as a result, contributed to team’s effectiveness to achieve satisfying and exhaustive project. On leadership competences, the study recommended that top managers should relies heavily on their critical analysis abilities and judgment, their cognitive ability, and their strategic vision to bring the project to a successful conclusion especially on implementation part. On effective communication, the study recommended that effective communication should be about how projects are created, directions decided and outcomes determined through dialogue between project managers and project stakeholders that ultimately shapes the scope of projects. en_US
