Construction Business Management, First Edition

John Schaufelburger

 

Construction is a risky business!  And unfortunately the reality is that construction company managers often lack the necessary “business management” skills needed to ensure the survival of their firms.  This groundbreaking new text is the first of its kind that consolidates critical business management topics, and presents them practically and accessibly by showing how they relate to the management of a construction company.

 

Construction Business Management  covers key business topics as they relate to the construction industry.  These include financial management, strategic planning, business development, human resources management, information management, quality management, and risk management.  The author believes that through good planning and ongoing evaluation, a well managed company can survive the economic downturns of a somewhat volatile industry.

 

Through numerous practical examples and identification of common pitfalls, this text   stresses the importance of the following tactics:

  • Creating a robust business and plan
  • Strong financial management
  • Effective communication, and marketing
  • Recruiting and retaining effective employees.  

In-text tools help ensure success in the field and the classroom. Practical features include:

  • Overviews and summaries for every chapter, highlighting key points.
  • Chapter review questions; application exercises
  • Additional sources  of information for every chapter
  • Completed Strategic Plan sample
  • Residential & Commercial Construction Case Study
  • Sample Employment Manual
