Abstract

The failure of many projects in the Third World, and consequently the failure of the development initiative, is attributed to the application of conventional First World technical and managerial methodologies without regard to the particular characteristics and requirements of the developing areas. This paper reports on initial investigations into the problems involved in the management of planning and implementation of construction projects in the developing areas, suggesting a multidisciplinary approach to their design and structuring, in the light of the attitudes, resources and cultural and developmental characteristics of these areas.

Die mislukking van baie ondernemings in die Derde Wereld, en gevolglik die mislukking van die ontwikkelingsinisiatief, word toegeskryf aan die aanwending van gewone Eerste Wereldse tegniese en bestuursmetodiek sonder agting van die besondere eienskappe en behoefles van die ontwikkelende gebiede. Hierdie verhandeling doen verslag oor aanvangsondersoeke in verband met probleme in die bestuur van beplanning en uitvoering van konstruksieprojekte in die ontwikkelende gebiede en stel voor 'n multi-dissiplinere benadering tot hulle ontwerp en samestelling, in die lig van die houdings, hulpbronne en kulturele en ontwikkelingseienskappe van hierdie gebiede.
