International Project Management and Relational Contracting Systems

Under the Belt and Road Initiative, China collaborates with partnering countries to initiate international mega-sized infrastructure development projects, aiming at boosting their economy and services. In practice, similar to the construction projects in Hong Kong, these types of construction projects often experience significant project delays and budget overruns due to a lack of proper management of resources and stakeholders.


In this workshop, guest speakers will address challenges that the project managers may encounter and will introduce the fundamental knowledge and real-life practices of international project management and relational contracting systems. Participants will be provided with real-life case studies to capture the lessons learned from managing construction projects both locally and internationally. The following topics will be covered:

  • project management techniques: scope management, time management, cost management, resource management and stakeholder management; and
  • construction procurement systems and relational contracting systems:
    - design-bid-build
    - design-and-build
    - partnering and collaborative working via Target Cost Contracting (TCC) and public-private partnership (PPP).
