Abstract

The paper addresses the emerging paradigm of performing project management over the web. It describes the pitfalls in current project management practices amidst the challenges they have to face due to increasing project complexities.At present, the government, industry and clients are all seeking to bring about change in the construction industry to improve quality, competitiveness and profitability and increase value to clients. The findings of this report will highlight how web-enabled project management and its associated features are strongly linked at fulfilling the above endeavours of the parties concerned. However, it emphasises that in order to successfully embrace web-enabled project management equal consideration should be given to technology, processes and people.
