An effective project management-based application model for sustainable urban renewal in Hong Kong
the cultural lessons learned
This journal article describes how the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) designed a project management-based application model that enabled it to implement sustainable urban renewal projects. It is a model that encompasses such frameworks as project organizational structure, team structure, attributes of team members, stakeholder management, communication, and information technology enablers. To verify and refine the model's performance capabilities, the authors studied similar-type models used by international agencies that also implemented urban renewal projects. What they found is that the SAR model can help other international agencies improve how efficiently and effectively they implement urban renewal projects. The authors also discuss how these other international agencies can adapt the SAR model to implement urban renewal projects in different environments.
