Implications for Open Design and Construct management

Initially, the project showed the characteristics making it an appropriate case for our purpose: doubtful functionality along with considerable overruns in time and money.

When this approach turned out to have limited success, the managerial concept was changed by a new project manager, very much in the direction of PII best practices. This change turned out to be successful in the sense that functionality (stakeholder satisfaction) and avoiding overruns in time and money were significantly improved.
