CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION TO MANAGING CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS 1.1. General Good project management is essential. In many developing countries construction alone accounts for about 10 percent of gross national product, and 50 percent or more of the wealth invested in fixed assets.

Examples of the latter are hospitals and mass-production factories. In a hospital the basis of medical care changes slowly, despite technological advances and the administration works to a routine. In mass-production industries the routine of production proceeds continuously, except when new models are being introduced. The elements included in project management starting from goals and ending with end product is given in figure 1.1.
