This paper introduces a management model applied to rescue a failed digital documenting services contract involving a large multinational vendor, referred to as Vendor A (VA), a large universitiy in the United States, referred to as X University (XU). The author’s objective is to tests the theory, in a case study setting, that a failed contract cou...
Conference Paper
A great amount of research has focused on improving project risk management processes. However, because of the uncertainty and variableness within building projects, past research has not been able to identify the frequency and timing of risk effects clearly during projects. Further project risk mapping is necessary to understand the characteristic...
