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.

Industrial, financial, commercial or any kinds of project have at least one common feature: the better organized they are, the higher the profit or the lower the cost. Project management is the principle of planning different projects and keeping them on track within time, cost and resource constraints. The need for effective project management is ever-increasing. The complexity of the environment we live in requires more sophisticated methods than it did just a couple of decades ago. Project managers might face insurmountable obstacles in their work if they do not adapt themselves to the changing circumstances. On the other hand, better knowledge of project management can result in better plans, schedules and, last but not least, more contracts and more profit. This knowledge can help individuals and firms to stay alive in this competitive market and, in the global sense, utilize the finite resources of our planet in a more efficient way.
