This study adopted mixed method, both qualitative and quantitative methods to bridge the gap between theory and actual practices of risk management. The study divided into two phases. The first part of the study is to rank the importance of Enterprise risk management critical success factors for project risk management implementation and the second part is to correlate the project risk management implementation to construction project success. The qualitative method conducted through reviewing extensively the academic literature reviews as the primary sources and conducting surveys and questionnaires as secondary sources. The quantitative method was conducting analysis through using SPSS software for the data collected from secondary sources to validate research questions and hypothesis. Furthermore the, results of the study presented the vagueness in determining the relationship between most important critical success factors and project risk management in addition to determining an exact definition of construction project success.
