As a result, industrialists and engineering institutions have called for the inclusion of a significant proportion of project management in higher level degrees and there has been a marked increase in Continuing Professional Development, CPD, courses for professionals.
This book provides a clear description of the aims of project management and discusses the theory and practice of project management, particularly in relation to multi-disciplinary engineering projects, both large and small, in the UK and overseas.
