KPMG’s Global Construction Survey 2015

Project owners are continually striving for a balance between power, responsibility and control. Managing these dynamics requires maturity: in planning and financial forecasting; in hiring and developing the right talent; in ongoing risk and project management; in contingency management to cope with the inevitable setbacks that accompany major construction projects; and maturity to build positive and effective working relationships with contractors that bring out the best in all parties.
