In this video, I share my view on what is causing so many capital and construction projects to cost more and take longer than they need to.
My conclusions might surprise you, that the most common methods used today to procure, plan and manage progress are the problem!
The claim that I make in the video – that task deadlines and fixed prices are a major cause of most of today’s project problems – is not made lightly. It’s based on research into project problems, and alternative approaches to today’s orthodoxy.
I don’t just highlight the problem, I will also provide you with a robust and practical alternative.
