Basics of construction project management


In this course, the learner tie in the theory of project management from the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the American Association of Cost Engineers (AACE) to the practical life of construction management.


Relying on individual experience, most construction project managers do not have a set of comprehensive rules for management processes. They rely on individual experience for such things as scheduling. But there is no set of comprehensive methods that combines the essence of project management. This type of construction project management cannot respond to the modern demands of global competition.

Also, a construction project may involve enormous investment, high social visibility and often public safety as well. The absence of a comprehensive construction project management framework to integrate everyone’s thinking and behavioral modes can easily turn the construction process into one for resolving communication and coordination problems, rather than improving team efficiency and dynamism.
