The management of construction projects presents major problems with information - or rather the lack of it. In order to keep a project rolling decisions have to be made before all the necessary information is available.

Drawing on a wide range of research to propose new ways of thinking about managing construction projects, this book explores the high grade management skills required to manage uncertainty, and offers improved techniques for thinking about challenging problems. Throughout the book theory is supported by vignettes and each chapter carries a complementary case study.

The book will help all construction practitioners who want to extend and develop their
ability to manage their projects as a cohesive and integrated whole, and for those students on masters courses who are training in those capabilities.
