Abstract: There has been a persistent reported increase in project failure in many Iraqi’s construction public project. This has resulted in project withdrawal from contractors, and revoking of companies licenses due to weak performance. This study investigated the effect of strategic and employee factors on the performance of construction public projects in Iraqi. The findings indicated that strategic and employee factors were statistically significant and they are important determinants for performance measurement. On the overall, the employee factors are more important than strategic factors and its component rewards is the most important variables. There is therefore a need for policy makers in Iraqi to focus on strengthening the role of strategic and employee factors in enhancing the project performance in construction projects.
