This was an exploratory and descriptive study on project management strategy and project performance factors. The project environment is characterized by internal and external factors that impact project strategy and performance. A quantitative study comprised of 226 project managers and project stakeholders in the state of Alaska explored the effects of project leadership authenticity, leader decision making, leader’s emotional intelligence, and organizational culture on project strategy. A qualitative study comprised of 22 project managers in Southcentral Alaska explored the effects of geography on project strategy. The resultant project manager profiles for both the project planning and project implementation strategies were distinctive. The profiles took into consideration three environmental elements including the project manager, the project sponsor, and the project location. The application of resultant profiles to the profession in Alaska leaves the door open to future research. Likewise, an expansion of the project environment, project strategies, and project participants provide an opportunity for supplemental studies in the future.
