Project partnering

Project partnering is a viable option to the traditional adversarial approach to the contractor/owner relationship in project management.Originally a spin-off of the Total Quality movement, partnering has been gaining popularity not only in construction projects, but in all types of projects.Project partnering helps to build a united team with a common goal, which in turn improves quality, reduces costs, and increases efficiency.Successful partnering involves selecting a qualified partner, establishing a rapport between the two major players in the project, and then expanding the commitment to other key players in the project.The major mechanisms to project partnering implementation are joint evaluation, problem resolution, continuous improvement and persistent leadership.
