The focus is on the individual management processes and techniques needed to manage a project with a review of management tools used in the performance of these processes.show more

Review quote

Back cover copy

This text is organized within the context of a real construction project, emphasizing the skills, knowledge, and techniques needed to be a successful project manager. The example of a single construction project used throughout the text is an effective analytical tool in that the topics are addressed in the sequence that a manager would address them on the job. The fact that it is a real-world project will be meaningful to readers who seek to apply concepts to everyday practices. "Key features of this edition: " Discussion of the interrelationships between field and office operations as well as the relationships between the estimate, the schedule, and cash flow. Excellent photographs depict the stages of the project's development. Logical organization of chapters and review questions.show more
