Detailed Description:Construction Extension to the PMBOK® Guide

This Construction Extension provides construction-specific guidance for the project management practitioner for each of the PMBOK® Guide Knowledge Areas, as well as guidance in these additional areas not found in the PMBOK® Guide:

• All project resources, rather than just human resources

• Project health, safety, security, and environmental management

• Project financial management, in addition to cost

• Management of claims in construction

This edition of the Construction Extension also follows a new structure, discussing the principles in each of the Knowledge Areas rather than discussing the individual processes. This approach broadens the applicability of the Construction Extension by increasing the focus on the “what” and “why” of construction project management. This Construction Extension also includes discussion of emerging trends and developments in the construction industry that affect the application of project management to construction projects.

Collaborative Project Procurement Arrangements

Large projects, especially in the construction and infrastructure sectors, involve collaborations of many different types, such as built-own-operate, public-private partnership, or competitive dialogue. This monograph details the authors’ research on the types of collaborative projects. The research undertaken for this book responds to the need for a taxonomy of relationship-based procurement approaches, a particular type of project alliancing in need of standardization.

Recommendations are made based on interviews with 36 subject matter experts from several countries, as well as an extensive literature review; the results presented in this study were guided by the following research questions:

• What are the fundamental characteristics of emerging relationship-based forms of project procurement?

• Do these forms vary in different parts of the world, and if so, in what way?

• What specific knowledge, skills, attributes, and experience are required to deliver such projects are currently underdeveloped or missing from traditional project managers’ knowledge and skills sets?

• How may any identified gaps be bridged?

Drawing on theoretical literature in the areas of project management, business, and human behavior studies, the research flows from the need to not only have a clearer definition of the characteristics of project procurement forms, but also from the need to identify desired characteristics required of project managers delivering these projects.

Of interest to project owners, project management practitioners, and academics, this book will help readers have a better understanding of how successful project managers could be identified, compared to the current competencies, and improved based on recommendations, adding further to the basis that project management is a transformational, co-generated learning process.
