Construction projects have become increasingly complex, requiring effective management strategies to navigate challenges related to project contexts, interdisciplinary integration, and procurement processes. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) has introduced the two-phase model to address these...

Purpose:<br/>The increasing complexity of civil engineering projects necessitates focusing on new competencies of project participants. Based on the research on team performance and design processes that are more closely linked to the relevance of the project context, it is hypothesised that empathic abilities could play an important role in...

Project management is known for its tools and techniques that are used to plan and deliver projects in a controlled context. Megaprojects don't always fit well into this paradigm due to their size, complexity and longevity. Megaprojects often start without precisely defined goals and without a detailed knowledge of how the project will...

Purpose: Civil engineering projects around the world have been underperforming for a long time. While the complexity of these projects will continue to increase, there is an urgent need to perform better. Although the integrated design process is critical for project success, the literature lacks studies describing the link to project...

The aim of this research was to investigate if and how the project performance of integrated construction projects can be improved by focussing on empathy during the preconstruction phase. Big infrastructural construction projects often face a poor project performance which causes the sector is aimed at searching for strategies to deal with this...

Molaei, M. (author)
Successful delivery of projects is the ultimate goal of many organisations. What is observed in practice, however, is that projects do not usually follow what is recommended in literature. Moreover, the dynamic nature of projects calls for continuous adjustments regarding the required project management practices contributing to performance....

Increased project complexity, project dynamics and changes in clients’ requirements are a few examples that suggest the necessity for flexibility in project management in order to deliver successful projects. Despite the fact that literature suggests adding flexibility to project management, there is no existing framework that provides a...

Despite of extensive and systematic usage of ‘Lag’ type of performance metrics, Large Infrastructure Projects (LIPs) often struggle in achieving the intended performance and frequently tend to be overbudget &amp; delivered late. This research investigates Key ‘Lead’ Indicators (KLIs) and provides suggestions on how to measure and influence them...

The main aim of this study is to gain insights into project management professionals’ perception of how project success can be achieved. The Q-methodology was followed in this research. Based on an extensive literature review and validation through expert judgment, a framework consisting of 33 factors increasing the likelihood of success was...

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to study the effect of project management flexibility in early project phases on end-project performance including its mediating role on the effect of complexity over project performance. Design/methodology/approach: Out of 13 hypotheses, 6 hypotheses regarding the relationships between areas of...

Based on the large amounts spent by software companies to develop new and existing software systems, we argue that an evidence-based approach that focuses on a software portfolio as a whole should be in place to support decision-making. We developed EBSPM as an evidence-based, practical model to support software companies to actively steer at...

Suprapto, M. (author)
Project practitioners have increasingly recognized the importance of collaborative relationships to ensure successful executions of projects. However, the ability to sustain and consistenly drive real collaborative attitudes and behavior for achieving the desired outcomes remains of enduring practical difficulty. This research shows that real...

Kaushik, N. (author)
The projects in oil and chemical (O&C) industry often experience problems during their execution, because of those problems, some of the project ends with large cost and schedule overruns. The poor performance of projects not only affects the strategic objective of project’s owner but also poses a dual threat to engineering and construction (E&C...

The nature of working relationship between owner and contractor in engineering and construction projects is considered to have a major effect on the project performance. This research focuses on factors that may influence owner-contractor relationship effectiveness. Literature suggests that different types of contract, being one of these factors...

Despite a general belief that incentive mechanisms can improve value for money during procurement and performance during project execution, empirical research on the actual effects is nascent. This research focuses on the design and implementation of incentive mechanisms in four different infrastructure projects: two road reconstructions in the...

Bosch-Rekveldt, M.G.C. (author)
Engineering projects become increasingly more complex and project complexity is assumed to be one of the causes for projects being delivered late and over budget. However, what this project complexity actually comprised of was unclear. To improve the overall project performance, this study focuses on identifying the potential causes of...

In The Netherlands, public works are contracted more and more in integrated ways. In recent literature, it is argued that procurement procedures will influence project performance. Even more, the procurement climate itself is found to influence the project performance by strengthening or altering the relationship between procurement procedure...
