Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Conflicts in Project Business

Project Business can be satisfying and profitable for all organizations and individuals involved. By joining ranks and combining tangible and intangible assets, corporations and other organizations can achieve incredible results.

Project business, unfortunately, is often impacted by conflicts. In a survey from 2017, respondents said that the #1 source of conflicts between contract parties in cross-corporate projects was diverging business interests.

Diversity of cultures and incompatible egos were on the following places. Some conflicts were "fossil", grudge taken over from previous projects, in which the parties had also worked together and had conflicts that never got finally resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. Even corruption can be a problem, and when it occurs, the consequences for the project can be disastrous.
