PMI, Upper Darby, PA. Chapter 1 Project life cycle and success Project management is not a new concept, but it has emerged since the Second World War as a methodology that can be applied to intensive periods of work with a specific objective, which can be isolated from general management so that expenditure can be ring fenced and the synergy of a team is engaged. However not all managers are able to cope with the dynamic nature of projects, where decisions have to be made fast and planning and control have to be very tight.

For example, a failure to look at ways of getting over problems to mutual advantage and time spent trying to apportion blame and making claims leads to one or both parties out of pocket. At tender stage the ‘them and us’ approach produces a minimum bid and claims for extras. This produces bad feelings and a ‘win–lose’ or ‘lose–lose’ environment between the client and the contractor. This can be avoided by an open attitude on both sides and a commitment to collaboration.
