Introduction

  • Background of the study

Project management practices have recently become a contemporary issue in the construction industry disciplines ‘(Ernest  &  Samuel2014).  Project management acceptance and incorporation into the construction industry in developing countries has been gradual and slow. Abbasi et al. (2000) stressed that the state of project management practices in developing African countries is still  in  the premature stage of development.  It therefore becomes imperative  that we seek to establish where we are as regards project management practices and to also seek the way forward Many definitions had been given to project by different authors, due to the fact that project  is  a  multidisciplinary  word  that  has  different  meaning  from  different perspective  and  orientations  (Olateju  et  al.,  2011).  According  to  the  Project Management Institute (PMI) (2000) cited in Pinto (2007), a project is a temporary activity or endeavour undertaken purposely to create a unique output (product or service)  within  budget,  time  and  standards.  According  to  PMI  (2000),  Project management  is  the  application  of  knowledge,  skills,  tools,  and  techniques  to project  activities  to  meet  project  requirements.  Project  Management  (PM)  is accomplished through the use of such processes as: initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing.

In applying project management to the construction industry, construction project management was defined by Walker (2002) and re-emphasized by Farrell (2008) as  the  planning,  co-ordination  and  control  of  a  project  from  conception  to completion  (including  commissioning)  on  behalf  of  a  client  requiring  the identification of the client‘s objectives in terms of utility, function, quality, time and  cost, and  the establishment  of relationships  between  resources,  integrating, monitoring and  controlling the  contributors to  the project  and their  output, and evaluating and selecting alternatives in pursuit of the client‘s satisfaction with the project outcome. In Nigeria today, there are constant news and reports of collapse of buildings and structures which have considerably led to loss of lives and or severe injuries. Also, a walk around urban areas shows a lot of abandoned projects and buildings that have been  marked by  regulatory bodies to be  demolished, because  they  do  not conform to the required standards
