According to me the most important 5 success factors are:
1)Agreeing on the project goals
2)Effective Communication
3)Develop clearly defined plans with assigned responsibilities.
4)Managing project scope effectively.
5)Making sure of management support.

So how are these factors individually important for a project?

4) Managing the project scope or maintain the focus on the scope is very important because having a definite scope allows project managers to stay on target. Many outlying factors can contribute to project delays and project failures, but properly managing your scope focus can help prevent these common issues. Lastly, the scope allows you to have a lot more control and flexibility over the project, so minor issues will not cause any delays. 

5) Im not sure what is meant by making sure of management support, but I think it is alluding to being supportive to the project team as the project manager. Leading with knowledge, confidence, and kindness is important to any team dynamic. If the team does not feel supported by the managers, they may be less likely to inquire about things and make more mistakes that can lead to a cascade of issues. Leading with the qualities mentioned above will make the project overall more efficient because it will be motivated and cohesive.

There are many factors which contribute to the success of a project, one of the most important for me being the teamwork which contributes most. having a clear idea of the outcome, having a good communication among the team members, sharing the details of the progress which every on has done and subsequently deciding on the next step is highly important. Finishing the project goals and then creating the reports and getting good customer feedback would contribute to the success of the project. However the feedback is also very important as it will always keep the quality of the product maintained and there will be room for more innovations.

I agree that those 5 factors are important for the success of any project, especially effective communication. In a project where there may be several departments and a lot of people working in collaboration to achieve the same goals, it is extremely important that everything is communicated. This includes updates on progress, any setbacks that occur, or disagreements that may arise. The importance of communication is highlight by the fact that the other factors rely on effective communication. Agreeing on project goals and the development of clearly defined plans and responsibilities require communication with everyone on the team. Management of project scope and management support also rely consistent communication between all members of the team.
