The challenges of project collaboration
The second interactive March session was facilitated by a newer acumen7 member, Warren Beardall, who revisited some old stalwart issues of project management and the ever-real challenges facing efforts of project collaboration. Issues of trust, behaviours and adequacy of visibility; propensity for dispute culture to endure; relative interpretations of success. All considered in the context of data driven decision-making, and whether critical control environments and contractual control had sufficient collaborative endeavour at their core. Construction, Public Private Partnerships and findings of Warren’s recent Master’s dissertation which posed these same questions formed the backdrop to a lively discussion.
