This book offers construction managers and students a readable account of management ideas and practices, concentrating particularly on the human side of construction management. It pulls together what has been learned both from management practice and research, and summarises the main themes and trends.<br><p>The text has been substantially revised to reflect the latest management thinking and to include new sections on communication, conflict management and managing innovation.

It provides a perfect introduction to the various theories and doesa good job in relating them to construction managementactivities... Although I am familiar with theories it contains, themanner in which they are presented makes this a fascinating andthought-provoking read, far superior to similar books I havestudied.
