Abstract

Projects have grown in number and started to shape our society in the

past decades, thus, it arises an important point which is the way they

can be managed. Project management help organisations to achieve

their goals through a developed structure. Construction projects have

been using the traditional project management for a long time, yet the

level of uncertainty in the construction environment today and the

number of different sectors involved have changed. This has pointed to

a gap between the used project management method in construction

project and the way these projects are executed. In addition, the

demand of applying new methods has been increasing and giving the

for new project management approaches to be used.

The usage of agile project management approach, which is developed

mostly in the software industry, has rapidly increased over the past

years. It fits projects with high complexity where the end product is not

well-defined.

This dissertation has studied a comparison between the traditional

project management approach and the agile project management

approach in a construction project.

The main benefit of using the agile project management is to increase

customer satisfaction by involving them throughout the project. It

reduces the uncertainties within the project and aim for tracking the

project progress through a value driven approach. However, projects

may reach high level of quality after completion without the agile

approach but the time and cost will vary.
