Description

Complications arising from poor collaboration are the source of a variety of the construction industry's biggest problems. It is now widely recognised that an effective collaboration strategy based on the implementation of information systems and careful consideration of the wider organisational issues is the key to delivering construction projects successfully.

Against a backdrop of rapidly developing communication technologies, and continuiung efforts to improve working practices, this book provides clear explanations of how to successfully devise and implement a collaboration strategy.

Examinations of emerging technologies like mobile and wireless are combined with overviews of relevant management theories, and industry case studies to provide a comprehensive guide suitable for both practitioners and students. Underpinned by research carried out by leading academics in cooperation with practitioners using the latest technologies, this is the most up-to-date and relevant guide to this crucial subject available. The book is essential reading for all practitioners and serious students of management in the built environment.
