Relationship between Demographics and Management Functions in Construction Projects Delays
This paper focus on the relationships between demographics of managers and the management of construction project delays. A sample of 150 large construction contractors were used to empirically test a proposed theoretical model. Partial correlations were calculated to establish whether demographics predicted the management functions in construction project delays. Results show that demographics only predicts two of the four functions of management namely organising and leading. Demographics influenced how contractors with different educational levels executed organising and leading in managing construction project delays. As this study only included large and experienced contractors, different results can be expected for smaller construction contractors.
