Abstract: This study investigates the issues/barriers that adversely affect project performance in United Arab Emirates (UAE). It explains the generic concept of performance measures which are schedule, cost and quality performance and analyses these three components’ performance for all case studies. The aim of the study is to identify and look into the various project management practices that can assist firms venturing for the first time in UAE, as well as firms who have already established their presence in UAE to improve the performance of future projects carried out in the region. Under this aim, the specific objectives of this dissertation are: (1) to investigate how past construction projects have fared in UAE, (2) to identify issues faced in managing construction projects in UAE and (3) to recommend ways to overcome issues faced or reduce possibility of issue from surfacing based on “lessons learnt” from past projects. A total of seven interviews with experienced personnel who have had past exposure to the UAE construction industry were conducted to achieve a deeper understanding of the factors that influenced performance and to collect valuable personal opinions regarding the work environment in UAE. These cases were then analyzed using the nine Project Management knowledge areas which include scope, time, cost, quality, risk, human resource, communication, procurement and integration management respectively. Major management areas that future project participants should take note of are: Scope, time, risk, human resource, communication, procurement and culture. These findings can better prepare and shorten the learning curve of first timers in UAE considerably by learning from past experiences of others. It can also assist existing local and foreign professionals involved in the construction projects to review their current management system and consider some of the recommended practices to improve project performance.
