The study insights about how project manager's areas of knowledge are correlated with each other and what are the contributions of these knowledge areas on success of projects. On the basis of Standish Studies and PMI's “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge” dimensions, knowledge areas required of a Project Manager were identified. These dimensions were assessed on the basis of a survey. This study was conducted on 84 respondents related to project management. The “contribution of these dimensions on success of project” was taken as the aggregate of these dimensions. The results revealed that these dimensions are positively correlated. The study also discusses the implications and suggests how a project manager can effectively and proactively plan and resolve factors which may lead to success of his projects.
