Response from Paul Currant- the new Project Manager

How and Why the Conflict Emerged

The conflict has emerged on the issue with respect to the scope in relation to the library works of Dover Street. The scope of the project includes the replacement of the front as well as overhand in relation to the library and also some other works associated with it. However, Mr. Strong has been against collaboration which has been planned to be entered between the architects, contractors as well as developers. It is also important to note that when the scope of the work is unclear, it may create an unpleasant relationship between the sponsor and the project manager in the future, resulting in disputes over the scope and etc. Additionally, Mr. Holt and Mr. Strong failed to communicate effectively. Inconsistencies in objectives can lead to conflict between team members. The conflict was at the stage of design when William Strong resigned from the post of project manager. Mr. Strong resigned during the design stage, and there were very few parties or individuals involved in the project. The conflict arises in this stage with regard to disagreement in relation to designing a project. There have been planning-related issues between the project sponsor as well as the project manager (WK -5 Session 2, 2022).
