Abstract

One major reason for the poor performance of construction project delivery is related to the 'ill'-performed project definition stage. The emphasis on rational decision-making and methods have stifled the creativity important to problem structuring and solution generation. Problem is in the poor conceptualization of the project definition stage in construction. Taking the design literature as starting point, the intent here is to clarify the underlying concepts and principles related to project definition stage, and propose a simplified prescriptive framework for the project definition stage.
