Opis: Programme Procurement in Construction - Stephen L. Gruneberg, John Mead
The book deals with the procurement of large construction programmes and projects. It concentrates on setting out the key factors leading to successful, effective and efficient procurement strategies. The approach ensures that a whole picture emerges of the capabilities of all firms and suppliers involved in the process, a picture that is different from the sum of its parts.
The experience and knowledge gleaned from running extremely large infrastructure and building projects forms a unique opportunity to give aspiring construction managers the know-how to undertake major projects and run them more successfully, more efficiently and more reliably than has hitherto been the case. The same techniques can be applied to smaller construction projects than the Olympic Games and Crossrail. Construction is central to the techniques describes but the lessons learned can be applied more generally. They can also be used in different types of complex programmes, where work is subcontracted, and to countries throughout the world, wherever major project are undertaken.
The processes described here will help senior management worldwide working on large construction projects reduce waste and deliver projects faster. The book will also be of great benefit to contractors in the supply chain who, in turn will be able to improve their management of their own suppliers.
