Applying PI practices to a complex situation SII

This mismatch between managerial approach and situation is quite common. The best practices PI, which in reality are only effective in relatively simple and predictable situations, are so widely accepted that quite often we see them being used in very complex and large construction projects as well. What usually happens then is:

1. A loss of functionality;

2. Overruns in time and money.

Ultimately, the project is completed in spite of the inappropriate managerial approach. Everybody is then glad that the problems in the execution were finally overcome, and there is little incentive to spoil the feelings of achievement by a post-mortem analysis. As a result, the inappropriate application of project management practices PI tends to be continued: a self-sealing process. Post-mortem analyses of three cases are given in Chapters 6, 7 and 8 from which we may conclude that inappropriate application of PI can seriously decrease functional performance and cause a waste of time and money.
