Lack of communication?
Bad planning?
Bad design?

I started a new poll, trying to identify the majority of root causes of NCRs in the construction industry.

There is always a huge temptation to sort out problem quickly and easily.
However I deliberately and consistently decline if there is any kind of canned solution in real life, especially for the identification of root causes.
I think we must encourage professionals to use there own common sense and professional judgement.
My two cents would be that we can not determine any root cause prior to visit the particular problem itself.
I know it may sound strange, but really there is no sensible way around.
Cheers!

The three you listed are not root causes; they are symptoms.
If you dig deeper and ask"why?" a few more times, you may get closer to the real causes. Also, keep in mind that there is not one root cause for a problem! There are usually a number of factors that contribute to a problem.

Even though I have never worked on a construction project, I voted "lack of communication" as the most common symptom, primarily because it can lead to both bad planning and bad design. Virtually every project begins with communication, and ends with it too....IMO how effective that communication is will help determine how successful the project is (in any field).
