Causes of project failure:
- Blg: Project or Management Failures? (sources
of project failure). The question this blog asks is
how many project failures are caused by project management
shortcomings and how many failed projects were set up to
fail by the organisation’s management?
- PP: Trust:

Wembley Stadium to the construction of Heathrow Terminal 5
where collaborative contractual arrangements lead to an on
time, on budget construction outcome that is unprecedented
for a £4 billion airport terminal.

Forensic cost analysis and reporting:

- PP: Assessing Delay and Disruption - Tribunals
Beware. Delay claims, linked to disruption and
acceleration cost claims are common. This paper is designed
to help ADR and legal professionals understand the options
available to disputants in assessing ‘delay’ to help them
quickly cut through the fog of expertise present in many
major disputes to achieve a speedy determination.
- PP: Concurrent
Delays in Contracts. The concept of concurrent delay
is a strongly contested topic in the building and
construction industry. The aim of this paper is
twofold. The first is to identify the variety of principles
or methodologies that may be followed in resolving parallel
delays disputes. The second is to outline the various
practical aspects relating to dealing with concurrent delays
Concurrent and Parallel Delays. A
review of independent, serial and concurrent delays.
- Blg: Dealing with client delay. Preventing
or minimising client induced delay is a common issue.
Whilst this type of delay can never be completely
eliminated, they can be reduced by applying this pragmatic
six stage approach.
