Achieving Satisfaction When Implementing PPP Transportation Infrastructure Projects: A Qualitative Comparative Analysis Of The A15 Highway DBFM Project

This article investigates how managers in public-private partnership (PPP) projects respond to social or physical events during the implementation of their projects, and which of their responses produce satisfactory outcomes. Multi-value Qualitative Comparative Analysis (mvQCA) was used to examine the events that took place during a large Dutch Design, Build, Finance and Maintain (DBFM) transportation …

Managing Unplanned Events In Large Infrastructure Projects: Results From An In-Depth Comparative Case Evaluation

This contribution intends to move beyond the truism that infrastructure project management is contextual and evaluates which configurations of management actions and contexts produce what outcomes. Therefore, we introduce multi-value Qualitative Comparative Analysis (mvQCA) as a complexity-informed method, and apply it to the Dutch A2 Maastricht infrastructure project. An analysis of eighteen cases within the project showed that context is …

Kritisch Kijken Naar Kansen: De Schaduwzijden Van DBFMO

Waar politici en beleidsmakers lijken weg te lopen met Design, Build, Finance, Maintain & Operate (DBFMO) als vorm van publiek-private samenwerking, laat onderzoek zien dat de hoge verwachtingen ervan in de praktijk niet altijd worden waargemaakt. DBFMO kan ontzorgend, zelfregulerend en efficiënter werken, maar is geen medicijn zonder bijwerkingen. Zo kunnen publieke waarden als transparantie …

Understanding And Researching Complexity With Qualitative Comparative Analysis: Evaluating Transportation Infrastructure Projects

In the article we propose a complexity-informed framework for evaluating transportation infrastructure projects. The article does this through four steps. First, the properties of infrastructure development projects are discussed. This leads to the conclusion that the specific locality or contextualization of a given project is important for explaining the outcome. Hence, there is a need for an ontology and …

Management As System Synchronization: The Case Of The Dutch A2 Passageway Maastricht Project

In order to deal with complexity, both in science and practice the importance of flexibility and adaptiveness in the design and management of human activity systems is stressed. However, existing frameworks of procedures, practices and rules often require strict planning, design and implementation. These requirements seem to be at loggerheads with one another. In this publication I take …
