Overview

Organisation structure can make or break the project manager

New forms of organisation are emerging in the construction industry – from partnering to virtual teams. There is a growing need to consider project organisational structures carefully. This book differs from the many other texts on project management by concentrating on the challenges of devising relevant structures for project management.

It examines the diverse factors to be considered when determining an initial overall organisation for new construction projects. It also looks at how to vary the organisation in response to the differing environments over the lifetime of a project.

In a pragmatic, accessible style, the author has both added to the body of knowledge in this area and provided the project management with a set of effectivemanagement tools to:

  • examine the criteria for designing structures within an organisation
  • identify the factors relevant to the development of an initial project organisation structure
  • assess the significance of an individual factor in the operation of a structure
