Abstract

Construction project performance is criticised for high failure rates due to challenges associated with the complexity, nature and dynamism of environment. The research in this area suggest that practicing better project management methods are essential and urgent. Therefore the research focused on better project management concepts that are capable of addressing deficiencies of Traditional Project Management (TPM) and reduce project failures. The research of project management has turned in to a new era where hybrid concepts are evolving. In this research it is expected to derive a hybrid of lean and agile concepts that can be applied in construction project management.This paper use the results of an extensive literature survey on concepts such as lean and agile,hybrid approach of project management and the survey results of the industry regarding expected attributes of a new project management approach. A hybrid conceptual framework is drafted absorbing the strong attributes of Lean and Agile while mitigating the effects of weak attributes of TPM. To build up the relationship between variables “Constructive method or a“problem solving process” which is used in similar research is adopted. The results are used in the main research to propose a new hybrid concept in project management
