The project considered:
The Guide to Leading Practice for Dispute Avoidance and Resolution was launched by Lyn O'Connell, Deputy Secretary of the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government on 17 November 2009.
The Guide, developed by the Australian building and construction industry, is designed to identify and communicate to key industry stakeholders recommended change management strategies to avoid contractual disputes between clients, contractors and other industry stakeholders, and where disputes cannot be avoided, to manage disputes effectively.
