Data collection was undertaken in two parts, through i) a questionnaire survey and ii) a series of focus groups. The focus groups followed the surveys and allowed more detailed interrogation of disputes and the modes for avoiding them. The surveys sought data in three main areas. Firstly they provided a confirmation of the causes of disputes for the team to use as a basis for the focus group sessions. Second they offered background information on the organisations being interviewed, by giving a sense of the size and variety of projects and their procurement routes. Finally the surveys gave an indication of the most common disputeavoidancestrategies currently adopted by the industry. The next chapter (3) analyses the data and categorises these for use in the Guide.
One of the key features of the alliance model is the creation of an alliance leadership team, which is focused on best-for- project outcomes and with providing the alliance management team with appropriate oversight and shared governance. By doing so, many of the influences on change are effectively managed and aligned with the performance outcomes. It is open to project teams formed under other delivery strategies, to borrow from the alliance model, and provide for a leadership team, made up of people not directly involved in the day-to-day management of the project, to focus on the quality of relationships and the playing out of roles and responsibilities with a “best-for-project” focus. An alternative approach is to appoint a project “coach”, whose role is to monitor the behaviour of the project team, and that of the client, at regular intervals, to flag possible problems and encourage open communication to address them.
Construction Innovation encourages the industry to carefully consider the Guide to Leading Practice for DisputeAvoidance and Resolution. It details the issues summarised and suggests strategies to reduce the likelihood of disputes occurring, as well as techniques and processes to deal with disputes more effectively. Construction Innovation encourages CEOs and senior executives of clients and other project sponsors, designers and contractors to adopt and implement the suggested strategies and turn presently wasted resources into additional wealth and productive investment to improve the quality of life for the Australian community.
The WTO DSU was negotiated as part of the Uruguay Round to create a new rules-based procedure for dispute settlement. Its structure and scope addressed the principal shortcomings of the GATT system as well as embodying the diverse objectives of many Member states. In the years since its inception, the DSU has demonstrated a sharper cutting edge in enforcing the international trade rules and greater effectiveness in resolving trade disputes between WTO Members. As it currently stands, the DSU therefore represents a significant improvement upon the previous GATT dispute settlement systems.
Whatever the purpose of Sub-Clause 20.5 of the Conditions of Contract, what should the Parties do during the “Amicable Settlement” period? If the highest level executive of each Party has not been involved in previous efforts to resolve the dispute without referring it to arbitration, that should occur at this point of time. Sometimes this is done by having a half-day or full day “mock arbitration” or “mini-trial” in front of the top executive of each Party, who then adjourn for private discussion aimed at amicable resolution. Often the Parties agree upon a skilled mediator to work with the parties’ senior executives to guide them of amicable resolution. Further background on these and similar dispute resolution devices such as various kinds of ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) can be found at www.iccwbo.com Also, some time the Parties simply consider carefully what the DB Decision has said, and explore whether they can use parts of the Decision to negotiate a mutually acceptable compromise.
resolve disputes because the time factor affects the next factor, level (8), which is economic factor. Since expenditure is a key consideration for parties involved in disputes, the method of dispute resolution which is least expensive will typically encourage parties in the dispute to select this method due to its cost. Expenditure also has an effect on the next level, which is the flexibility factor, and is denoted by level (7) on the figure. This factor is important for selecting a solution for disputes, since flexibility can play a role in influencing factors, such as time and place according to the experts’ and arbitrators’ opinion. With this method, the parties in the dispute, as well as the arbitrators, may come to an agreement at any time (during the day or night) or at any other time during official working hours, and also in any place other than official places, such as in the hotel lobby/waiting area, or in an office. Flexibility factor will affect the next level on the list, which is level (6) and refers to the trust factor. The trust factor is crucial to all parties involved in the dispute, as selecting a method of dispute resolution is not achieved by trust, since trust is achieved through reputation factor, which is built or developed based on any previous dealings that have occurred between parties. The trust factor also affects the next factor (level 5), which is neutrality factor. Neutrality is considered to be very important to some parties and may therefore be selected, as this may be instrumental in achieving a solution to some disputes, particularly when there are an odd number of arbitrators involved (method of arbitration and DAB). Neutrality factor affects the next level, which is fairness (level 4), which ensures that any verdicts or decisions made, even in the case of a loss or a decision against one party is judicious. Being fair also affects the next factor, which is level 3, and that is relation preservation factor. Relation preservation factor is an important factor for all parties and arbitrators because in some instances, solutions for disputes can cause enmity after being implemented; however, some solutions, in contrast, can cause good relationship between parties after being implemented. The relation preservation factor can have an impact on the next two factors, which are the psychosocial and privacy factors. In order to create a good relationship, privacy should be protected and good spirit should be developed and preserved in order to have a good relationship.
This hearing dealt with the tenant’s application for dispute resolution under the Residential Tenancy Act (the “Act”) seeking an order requiring the landlord to make repairs and emergency repairs, for a monetary order for money owed or compensation for damage or loss, for an order requiring the landlord to comply with the Act and for recovery of the filing fee.
35. The Applicant submitted two separate requests for decision review. The first, dated 21 December 2009, was addressed to the FPO/J and the second, dated 13 February 2010, was addressed to the DUO/J. Both requests for review were submitted more than 11 years after receipt of written notification of the impugned decision. The FPO/J responded to the first request by letter dated 27 January 2012 and the FHRO/J responded to the second request by letter dated 30 March 2010. 36. In his submissions in response to the Tribunal’s guidance contained in Order No. 032, the Applicant has argued that he could not submit a request for decision review in a timely manner because he feared that his position would be terminated should he submit such a request. This fear was related to a dispute with the Chief of Education. The Tribunal does not find this explanation to be credible.

Internal policies and procedures regarding communication, approvals, signoffs and the like, have no bearing in a dispute unless incorporated into the contract and made an obligation of the parties. Consider the number of people who might have a discussion, some form of correspondence, or even just contact with anyone in the other party – there will be quite a few people acting with presumed authority and inadvertently
