How Digitalization Affects Project Management – Evidence from Two Case Studies in the Construction Industry

Sep 24, 2019 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation. To analyze the digital transformation of traditional PBOs and modern PNWs, comparative case studies in the context of commercial construction have been conducted in Sweden and in Germany.

تعكس أهداف المشروع بشكل عام احتياجات ورغبات أصحاب المصلحة في المشروع، ويجب تنسيق هذه الاحتياجات والرغبات المتنوعة جماعيًا لتجنب التعارض مع أهداف المالك. ويرتبط نجاح المشروع ارتباطًا وثيقًا بالتعاون بين أصحاب المصلحة مع تكامل المعلومات بين الجميع خلال دورة حياة المشروع. وتساعد نمذجة معلومات البناء (BIM) على ترجمة القيمة لدى المالك إلى مشروع ناجح من خلال تمكين تدفق المعلومات المستمر وتقديم منتج عالي القيمة. وتعتبر عملية البناء واحدة من أقدم الصناعات والتى يُنظر إليها على أنها مجموعة من الأنشطة التي تهدف إلى تحقيق ناتج معين. وتشمل عملية الإنشاء على أنواع مختلفة من الفواقد والتي قد تحول المشروع الجيد إلى مشروع سيء، حيث تُوجد الكثير من الفواقد والهدر أثناء عملية البناء والتى قد ترجع إلى سوء التصميم، وسوء المشتريات والتخطيط، وعدم الإستخدام الأمثل للموارد، وبقايا المواد الخام، والتغيرات غير المتوقعة في تصميم المبنى وغيرها. والمصدر الرئيسى لهذه الفواقد هو مشاركة المعلومات دون المستوى الأمثل، وعدم فهم الطبيعة التكرارية لمراحل التصميم المفاهيمية والتخطيطية.

Topic Teasers Vol. 124: But Agile Won’t Work for Me!

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: With all due respect to my IT co-workers, agile may be the greatest thing since sliced bread for them, but it won’t work for me and my team. We are doing large infrastructure projects for a major city, and we can’t be assembling a small team of five to seven people to chat each morning before we decide what to do that day. But I will admit that we do need some help since few, if any, of our projects finish as planned regarding time. Also, the budgets are just a joke, because I don’t know if we’ve ever completed our work anyplace close to the estimated costs. So, make agile fix that!

by PM Network, Novid Parsi
