Engineering Project Management provides a clear description of the aims of project management, based on best practice, and discusses the theory and practice in relation to multi-disciplinary engineering projects, both large and small, in the UK and overseas.
The Third Edition takes account of the increase in joint ventures, project partnering, special project vehicles and other forms of collaborative working. The text has been extended to give more information on procurement, stakeholders and collaborative provision.
For the first time this book now contains a chapter on the UK PRINCE2® project management methodology providing a unique insight into this increasingly popular approach.
The expertise of the authors gained from their promotion of effective project management through a combination of professional experience, research, consultancy, education and training should be beneficial to both students of project management and recently appointed or practising project managers. The material is appropriate to support Masters level teaching, MSc, MBA and MEng, either by universities or others, action or distance learning courses and self learning programmes.
