Evaluation of stakeholder influence in the implementation of construction projects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A negative attitude to a construction project by stakeholders can severely obstruct its implementation. Such obstruction will cause cost overruns and exceeded time schedules due to conflicts and controversies concerning project design and implementation.
A case study consisting of two projects has been undertaken to investigate how the problems of managing the concerns of stakeholders present themselves in an actual construction project. A method of stakeholder mapping, together with the power/interest matrix, has been used to identify stakeholders and their influence on the projects studied. Which problems arose, how were they resolved, and what were the consequences of the solution? The case study shows that an evaluation of stakeholder demands and
influence should be considered as a necessary and important step in the planning, implementation, and completion of any construction project.
