Description

The construction industry's latent potential for integrating and improving its procurement processes has long been recognised in most developed countries. Numerous government level reports insist that full integration of the design and construction supply chain can result in substantial gains in efficiency, morale and quality. New methods of working, such as partnering and prime contracting, give sophisticated opportunities for clients, end users and the design and construction supply-side to work in a more effective and collaborative way.

Contents include: Introduction; 70 Years of Customer Demand for Improvement; The International Demand for Improvement; The Three UK Best Practice Standards and their Six Goals; The Virtual Firm; Motivating and Leading Radical Improvement; Becoming a Best Practice Client; Integrating the Design and Construction Team; Ensuring the Delight of the End Users; and Selecting the Independent Experts.
