Implementation constraints in social enterprise and community public private partnerships

Nisar, Tahir M. (2012) Implementation constraints in social enterprise and community public private partnerships International Journal of Project Management, 31, (6) (doi:10.1016/j.ijproman.2012.08.004).

Record type: Article


Public Private Partnership (PPP) employs private sector expertise and skill to provide public goods and services. We examine three community PPP projects to identify critical success factors of the project outcomes. Two conclusions particularly stand out: first, the project must be aligned with both the public and private parties' business and service plans, and second, appropriate management structures and procedures must be established for obtaining this alignment. The latter effect recognizes the need to implement appropriate project governance practices including management discipline and expertise. We investigate these ideas further and present specific guidelines for PPP project design and implementation.
