Project Management in Construction by Anthony Walker
Book DescriptionProject Management in Construction adopts a systems approach to organisation analysis and design from the initial concept of the project. It is concerned particularly with the integration of the contributors to the process and the way in which decisions are made. Appropriately structured organisations are essential for the delivery of effective projects, the design of which requires an in-depth knowledge of organisation theory applied to the definition, design and construction of projects. The Fifth Edition addresses the increasing complexity facing major construction by examining advances in the major theoretical concepts underlying project management, together with practical developments such as supply chain management. New ideas such as chaos and complexity theory are examined in the context of construction project management, and aspects of organisation theory, such as trust and hierarchy, have been further developed. The topic of sustainability is discussed as a powerful new environmental force impacting on both the project management process and the industry and its clients.
