It is sometimes worth stating the obvious. "Projects which are developed to suit the institutional capacity of the managing organizations stand better chances of sustainability and effective utilization by its customers." Conversely institutional capacity of organizations require enhancement if they are to manage projects which are unmanageable with their existing setup. Either of these two arguments is to be satisfied for effective and efficient operation and maintenance of systems. Not understanding the obvious is hallmark of our infrastructure planning, design, implementation and operation and maintenance strategies. Even if it is really understood by our infrastructure planners then why the obvious gets blurred while transforming from paper to reality in a project cycle? In the specific context of the PMU, this study provide some "food for thought" for identifying the reasons for not realizing the obvious.
