Problematic issues associated with project partnering : the contractor perspective
Ng, S. Thomas, Rose, Timothy M., Mak, Michael M. Y., & Chen, Swee-Eng (2002) Problematic issues associated with project partnering : the contractor perspective. International Journal of Project Management, 20(6), pp. 437-449.
The use of project partnering is becoming more frequent in Australian Government construction projects because of the potential benefits that can be achieved from the effective implementation of the project partnering arrangement. Despite this, project partnering is not always successful. The aim of this paper is to identify the problematic issues associated with project partnering based on contractors’ perceptions. Fifteen problematic issues were identified from six contractors involved in unsuccessful project partnering relationships. The results indicate that the unwillingness of the client to fully commit to the partnering agreement was the main reason for ineffective project partnering. There is a need for the public clients to adapt more flexible administrative procedures in order to improve contractors’ willingness to commit to project partnering arrangements.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
