Project types in building and construction
Luleå tekniska universitet.
1993 (English)In: International Journal of Project Management, ISSN 0263-7863, E-ISSN 1873-4634, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 68-71Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In the profession of project management, it is normally assumed that the project goals, product quality, delivery time and cost to the client, are very firm, and are not negotiable. To prevent misunderstandings, it is demonstrated in this paper that this is not actually true in a very large number of projects. The examples come from the building and construction business, in particular in Sweden. However, some projects nearer to the UK have the same kind of emergency exits. When such exits are present, the messages about how to work efficiently inside the project are sometimes not as interesting as is believed.
