Sugar demands for Tanzania have expanded essentially as of late. One of the procedures embraced to make the tasks, sugar sales and demands sustainable is by implementing capital projects to meet the medium and long-term goals. However, studies have shown that an appropriate organisational theory is dependent upon the kind of work performed and the climate where the association directs its business. Subsequently, analysing the effect of organisational theory on the project performance in KSCL is a significant target of the examination. The exploration embraces an inductive contextual investigation approach with both qualitative and quantitative examination strategies for gathering and analysing the information. A sample size of 90 participants of the different classes of labourers was taken from the Company's all out of 912 population using convenience and purposive sampling techniques. Interviews and questionnaires were utilized as the primary instrument of information assortment for the study. The study found out that the organisational theory in place of KSCL is mechanistic which relates to projects in a very weak matrix structure due to the nature of its operations, the strategy adopted, the size of the company and the need to respond rapidly to the dynamic complexity of the external environment. However, this structure is the wellspring of serious issues in the execution of projects as the investigation uncovered and reasoned that a portion of the organisational structure related factors fundamentally influences contrarily to the classifications of the key performance index to be a specific time, cost and quality. Based on this, a project structure was recommended to be adopted among other recommendations made by the study. Keywords: Project, Performance, Organisational Structure, Organisation Theory.
