Delays of Projects Caused by Owner
mohamed khalifa, Management Consultant, Libya, Member
Kindly I am doing a PhD on the impact of the management policies and procedures on the delay of projects (in the public sector in Libya).
In my opinion, the owner has a big part in the responsibility for creating project delay problems.
In your opinion, what are typical causes the owner is responsible for, causing project delay problems? Any information or feedback in this regard will be highly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Project delays due to owners can happen for many reasons, such as:
- Delaying decisions
- Delaying payments
- Delaying approval of the submittals.

More Reasons for Project Delay Caused by Owners

I don't know how it works in Libya. However, all stakeholders have equal responsibility.
Having said that, it depends on the situation. For example:
- If you are dealing with a project in the public sector, the delay could be caused by the government changing its priorities, unstable government, bureaucracy, etc.
- In case of sub-leasing, the delay could be because of mismanagement and communication gaps.
- Allocation of improper resources is another cause for delay.
- Often, the requirements are not properly communicated by the owner or understood by the consultant. By talking direcly to a project owner, having a continuous communication, or doing regular interviews with the owner could reduce/minimize the delays.
