This book is designed to provoke those involved in the process of managing construction projects to reconsider, analyze and improve the effectiveness of them. It is grounded in the systems approach to management and it distils the ideas central to such thinking and applies them to construction. It is concerned particularly with the integration of the contibutors to the process and the way in which decisions are made. The client's role in this process is distinguished and examined. Against this backcloth a variety of organizational forms available for the implementation and management of construction projects are considered in terms of their contribution to the fufilment of the clients objectives.

This book provides a systems approach to management, as applied to construction, and is particularly concerned with integration of the contributors and the ways in which decisions are made.
