This collection contains 133 papers that explore the latest thinking and technologies that are driving success in today's construction industry. In construction management and engineering, construction engineering, workforce development, lean construction, and project management are pushing the envelope of traditional project management concepts. Organization management topics for construction executives facing challenges from every part of the globe include lifelong learning, strategic and corporate management, sustainability, and life-cycle engineering, as well as traditional scheduling and estimating.
