The study aimed to address the challenges facing effective project management in Kinondoni district, Dar es Salaam. The study was guided by four specific objectives, to establish whether technology plays a major role in effective project management in construction projects, secondly to determine whether limited financial resources is one of the most prominent hindrance in construction sites in the district; Third specific objective was to examine whether worker motivation is a factor in determining effective project management in the construction sites within the district, and lastly to investigate if communication is a challenge in effective project management in construction sites within the district. The researcher used a case study design. A sample of 30 respondents using qualitative and quantitative research approach whilst applying purposive sampling was applied. The sample size embodied three groups of respondents, thus project managers, project workers and community shareholders. Technology thus modern tools, modern machines, and globalized approached towards execution in these sites were proven central to their general advancement. The absence of a sufficient budget, the presence of bureaucratic processes that impeded the flow of finances, as well as a fair amount of corrupt tendencies were all under this premise. These are some of those challenges. Transparency when dealing with finances to avoid any bureaucratic and/or corrupt tendencies; providing other worker incentives apart from salary, as well as worker recognition, and creating a multifaceted communication structure, effectively hearing team players views and so forth are among the recommendations suggested towards the curbing of these project challenges. Keywords: Motivation, Technology, Communication, and Funds.
