Abstract:The scope of contractors, within engineering projects, is growing and becoming more complex (Locatelli, Mancini, & Romano, 2014). It is changing from making the final design and construction, towards responsibility of the entire life cycle of the project. For these projects, success is not only based on the so called ‘iron-triangle; Cost, Time and Quality (Locatelli et al., 2014). According the iron-triangle, a project is a success if it is delivered within time and budget, and in respect of the customer’s specifications. The iron triangle focusses on the outcome of a project in time and budget, not specifically on the process towards the outcome. With the growing scope of the contractor in mind, this irontriangle no longer suffices for the success of a project. The growing scope of the contractors ensure that the work packages of the contractor are also growing and more boundaries with stakeholders are addressed.
