101 Case Studies in Construction Management Book Excerpt:

This book provides 101 real-life construction management case studies from an author with over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry and as a lecturer in construction management. Over 14 chapters, Len Holm has included case studies from real jobsites that cover organization, procurement, estimating, scheduling, subcontractors, communications, quality and cost control, change orders, claims and disputes, safety, and close-outs. Other hot topics covered include BIM, sustainability, and lean. Each case is written in straightforward language and designed to test the reader’s independent and critical thinking skills to develop their real-world problem-solving ability. The cases are open to interpretation, and students will need to develop their own opinions of what’s presented to them in order to reach a satisfactory solution. The cases are ideal for use in the classroom or flipped classroom, for individual or group exercises, and to encourage research, writing, and presenting skills in all manner of applied construction management situations. Such a broad and useful selection of cases studies cannot be found anywhere else. While there is often no "right" answer, the author has provided model solutions to instructors through the online eResource.

Project Management in Construction Book Excerpt:

As with all previous editions of Project Management in Construction, this sixth edition focuses on systems theory as the approach suitable for organizing and managing people skilled in the design and completion of construction projects. It discusses the many competing paradigms and alternative perspectives available, for example in relation to differentiation and integration, as well as the emerging study of temporary organizations and its relevance to construction project management. Whilst encompassing the need to develop further theoretical aspects of construction project organization theory, this edition has also enhanced the application of organization studies to practical issues of construction project management. More emphasis has been placed on the added complexity of construction project management by issues surrounding clients and stakeholders, and the control and empowerment of project participants. Additional focus has been placed on sustainability issues as they impinge on construction project management, on reworked views on supply chain management and on developments in partnering, together with clarification of the shifting terms and definitions relating to construction organization structures and their uses.

Managing Construction Projects Book Excerpt:

Project management is of critical importance in construction, yet its execution poses major challenges. In order to keep a project on track, decisions often have to be made before all the necessary information is available. Drawing on a wide range of research, Managing Construction Projects proposes new ways of thinking about project management in construction, exploring the skills required to manage uncertainty and offering techniques for thinking about the challenges involved. The second edition takes the information processing perspective introduced in the first edition and develops it further. In particular, this approach deepens the reader’s understanding of the dynamics in the construction project process – from the value proposition inherent in the project mission, to the functioning asset that generates value for its owners and users. Managing Construction Projects is a unique and indispensible contribution to the available literature on construction project management. It will be of particular benefit to advanced students of construction and construction project management, as well as contractors and quantity surveyors. Reviews of the First edition: "A massive review of the art and science of the management of projects that has the great virtue of being a good read wherever it is touched. It spills the dirt on things that went wrong, elucidates the history so you can understand the industry's current stance, draws on other countries experience and explains the latest management processes. Throughout it is liberally sprinkled with anecdotes and case histories which amply illustrate the dos and don't for practitioners wishing to deliver projects on time to expected quality and price. A valuable book for students and practitioners alike." —John D Findlay, Director, Stent "This is a valuable source for practitioners and students. It covers the A-Z of project management in a confident contemporary manner, and provides a powerful and much needed conceptual perspective in place of a purely prescriptive approach. The engaging presentation introduces a range of challenges to established thinking about project management, often by making comparisons between practices in the UK and those of other countries." —Peter Lansley, Professor of Construction Management, University of Reading "A refreshing and unique study of information management and its impact upon international construction project management.... The book is well presented and written, logical and succinct and is flexible enough to allow readers to either read from start to finish or to dip into selected chapters. This book deserves to be an established text for any construction or civil engineering under - and/or postgraduate course." —CNBR, 25th November 2003 "Generous use is made of anecdotes andc case histories throughout to support the theory. the book illustrates the mistakes made by others, and the means to deliver projects on time and to cost." —Building Services Journal, April 2004

CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT Book Excerpt:

The quest for Critical Success Factors “CSF” in project management in every industry is the aim of company and project manager around the world. This is primarily because of the cost attached to such large-scale projects, especially those financed by governmental entities, municipalities and provinces. Large-scale construction projects in particular have a critical impact on governmental budgets, economic growth, and ecology. As such, determining what critical success factors that directly contribute to cost reduction, timely delivery, improvements in quality of construction and positive impact on the environment can being mutually beneficial to all participants and stakeholders. The state of Oman like other GCC countries has a particular interest in determining such CSF in the post financial crises, where numerous landmark projects has been frozen due to financial constraints. Therefore, avoiding pitfalls in project management related factors could significantly impact the future role of British and Western construction companies in the Gulf and other parts of the world in post-Brexit U.K. The pressure on British companies is equally higher today than ever before to maximize the effectiveness in implementation of construction related projects internationally, to compete with other European and Chines construction firms. Innovation and cultural forces are found to play a significant role in cross-cultural project success. Such forces then can be viewed in relation to CSF will ultimately affect all participants and beneficiaries, stakeholders and the environment. Therefore, the attempt to explore varying CSF is more important to governments in developing economies, and private sectors involved in future construction projects, as much as it is important to Western firms attempting to compete and expand their market base in such critical part of the world and uncertain outlooks for the U.K. economy particularly.
