Description

This book captures best practice in construction stakeholder management using a range of international case studies. It demonstrates stakeholder mapping, presents the power/interest matrix and analyses a model for the timely engagement of stakeholders. The increased use of partnering and other relational forms of contracting have underlined the need for project participants to work together and also to be aware of all those who can affect or be affected by a project and its associated developments. Stakeholder management enables them to see this wider picture and provides guidance for managing the diverse views and interests that can manifest in the course of a project's life. All construction projects have the potential for conflicts of interest that can result in costly and damaging legal proceedings. This new book advocates an alternative to dispute resolution that is proactive, practical and global in its application. Construction Stakeholder Management is therefore an essential text for advanced students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners in the built environment.
