The construction industry has been challenged with the constant pressure of high costs, the reduction of project life cycles and the growing competitiveness. The construction projects are becoming more and more dynamic, complex and with lower durations.
The project management methodologies have thus a fundamental role in the construction industry, constituted by organizations strongly oriented to projects.
The day to day of these organizations is traditionally characterized by:
- Strong need of interpersonal aptitudes;
- Difficulty on managing time;
- Excessive number of meetings;
- High number of conflicts;
- High level of cost control;
- Very detailed planning.
Which need to be managed in an effective and efficient way in order to lead to satisfactory results on the projects and consequently on the organizations.
A properly framed and oriented project management brings clear advantages in terms of planning, executing and project control and, depending on the level of implementation may lead to a reduction between 5 and 15% of the project / construction‚Äôs costs.
