Abstract

Project management in the construction industries of Australia, the USA and many other nations has not resulted in substantial industry productivity improvement for three decades. This paper examines the project management process in the Australian construction industry. Specifically, using a process philosophy approach, the ‘mode’ of project management is outlined and the forces that impel the industry to operate as it does are explained. The paper concludes that for productivity to improve there needs to be a significant change in process, and for this to occur there will need to be alterations in the forces that influence the process.
