Description

The one thing that all well-run, profitable construction projects have in common is that they benefit from good project managers. People who have the skills to plan the project, manage it and keep it on track whenever tight timescales, costs, people or other difficulties threaten to derail it. The good news is that there is no secret art to project management. These are the skills that any manager can learn and use. Project Management in Construction is a practical, easy-to-read guide to defining, organizing, planning, and executing a construction project so that it is completed to the satisfaction of the principal stakeholders. The book is part of the Leading Construction Series co-published by Gower and CITB-ConstructionSkills. The Leading Construction Series is part of a CITB-ConstructionSkills initiative to develop management skills within the industry. The books in this series are designed to be essentially practical, with a firm grounding in the construction industry.
