The Challenge of Finding Equilibrium In Large Public Projects – A Governance Perspective
The aim of this paper is to analyze the main objectives and drivers of a governance framework for the public project from the perspective of project stakeholders. It’s crucial to accept and respect them, otherwise, its possible great contribution to boosting the development of society wouldn’t be used. Good governance is strongly related to project management. As it was started 40 years ago, a bureaucracy, which truly represents all segments of the population, can best serve the interests of people. This means a representation of each kind of diversity at the public bodies, ministries, and state administration bodies. The paper gives a descriptive analysis of state-of-the-art governance bodies and population in the whole of Europe, as well as a case study of Croatia. Results show the strong relationship between macroeconomic measures and project management characteristics of EU countries. It’s obvious that the development of societies encourages stronger people-orientation and vice versa. On the other hand, people's recognition and implementation should be the natural result of civilization. Its artificial stimulation without a real change in the mindset of people simply does not yield the desired results.
