Management for the Construction Industry introduces the principles of management and applies them to the construction industry. It covers the level 2 module of the CIOB's Education Framework on management and is officially sanctioned by the CIOB as the recognised text for that module. The text builds on the knowledge of basic disciplines, such as technology, economics and law, and forms the basis for more advanced studies in specialist aspects of management. The main context of the book is the construction industry but emphasis is also given throughout to transferable skills in the study of management.
This book is a core text for the CIOB level 2 module on management, as well as BTEC HNC/D building studies and degree courses in building, construction management and surveying.
