CASES IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
 A Construction News Book


The use of cases in management education is now well established. There is,
however, a gap in the number and quality of construction management cases. It
is hoped this book will help to fill the gap.

The cases will be suitable for all management courses, both in-company and
college based, but will be particularly useful for the Chartered Institute of
Building Membership I and II examinations.


The cases have been tried out on students and found to be effective.
The author has been a lecturer and management consultant for 24 years. He
has his own consultancy business and is also a Director in PES Associates—
Management Consultants. The case work is principally taken from his own case 
It is important to have a tutors manual as all the information need not and
possibly should not be given to the student. Additional information which is
likely to be called for is in the tutors manual. There is, however, still scope for
the tutor to use his own imagination.
People learn better when doing and the case method is one of the best ways to
do this. The tutor becomes a course manager and not a talking machine. He will
learn as well as the students.
Geographical names may be changed to suit the location the case is being
operated. Local conditions should be considered.
