  • Titill er á ensku Agile design in the construction industry : using existing methods from the software industry in a new context
  • Meistara
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    This paper explores the adaptation of various management methodologies frequently used in the software industry for the field of construction. The construction industry has a long and extensive history of following traditional project management methods. By challenging the status quo, the paper aims to offer new insights and solutions for managing the design phase of construction projects. The status of current methods is explored using a literature review and interviews are conducted with project managers from both industries. The exploration reveals that the linear thinking of traditional project management methods may not always be the optimal solution when it comes to creative processes such as design. Incorporating new methods and making the process more iterative can enhance the project outcome and generate additional value for all stakeholders, while also making the design process more engaging and fulfilling for designers. The reader is encouraged to consider value in terms of a wider definition, not only in cost and time measurements but also in more subjective ways such as enjoyment, sustainability, customer satisfaction, and impact on society. The benefits of utilizing methods from the software industry, such as Agile and Scrum are highlighted, and the aim is to encourage the construction industry to explore these alternative approaches to project management. A framework that can be used is proposed in this paper. It emphasizes three key areas that improvements should focus on; creating value, improving communication, and optimizing information flow.
