[...] To my eye, creativity itself is an act of faith. Every time we move onto the page, the stage, the canvas, we are committing an act of faith, and that takes daring. " I don't know what possessed me to try that," we say, and we are telling the truth. Something larger than ourselves - call it grace or inspiration - gave us the courage to become larger ourselves.

This dissertation focuses on the application of conventional and customised project management techniques used to implement construction processes within a different project environment. Identifying core criteria of brand development and systemised delivery into different cultural environments is the fundamental approach of discussing project implementation within the European context. The need for standardised systemisation processes is evaluated by investigating shortcomings of bespoke systems in various construction and industrial contexts.
The European automotive industry has been chosen to be an example for international brand creation through project management techniques and does not intend to be generalised in its execution procedures. The research within this industry puts the emphasis on critical success factors of project execution and depicts valuable information and experience from participants of assorted project disciplines.
