Agile in Construction Projects PDF
Managers involved in construction projects are supposed to lead as well as manage their respective projects in their entire life cycles. Due to the fact that construction projects carry a lot of risks, and are unpredictable in nature, it is not an easy task to manage them as a manager.
According to Turner (2014) construction projects needs flexible leadership and management for the purposes of responding to different changes that occur during their execution. As way of trying to deal with construction project management challenges over the years managers have been using traditional methods of project management. However, due to weaknesses associated with traditional approaches to project management, the agile project management technique was designed for purpose of being used in the construction industry (Turner, 2014).
Nonetheless, its use has been faced with a number of obstacles and there is a need of understanding these challenges with the objective of improving its use in the future so as to enhance the process of constructing project management. A minimum number of studies has been undertaken regarding obstacles associated with the use of agile in construction and designing projects.
Hence, little knowledge concerning challenges associated with the use of agile makes its application in designing and construction projects a challenge for many managers. Hence, this study has helped in addressing this problem by looking in depth at the challenges of using agile in construction projects and ways in which the challenges can be addressed in the future.
