This study used qualitative method where it adopted semi-structured interviews involving nine practitioners. The data were analysed using content analysis technique. Through the analysis, the study validated several ISM factors and their elements that contribute to the success of ISM. The findings provide practitioners with the high understanding of ISM key factors and could guide practitioners in implementing proper ISM.
