More Reasons for Project Delay Caused by Owners
Rakesh Gudur, Strategy Consultant, India, Member
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.
