It is a front page news in the NST to-day.The Work Minister warned to terminate contractors that fail to start work within a month from the date of possesion of site.The main reason is to avoid delays in project implementation.
As a student of project management( I also teach sometimes), we must list down ALL type of delays and the major causes of project delay.When we understand what, where, who,why,when and how,then only we can properly address the issue.
How about the higher issues of achieving project goals and objectives?
IMHO,most projects will have problems due to incompetent stakeholders.
Failure to start is failure to complete.
