Shaping Engineers with technological background to be mangers with creative leadership qualities has always been an onerous task. Most engineers aspire to become managers. The transition has to take place from engineering skills to managerial skills. This is possible when there is creativity, envisioning and innovations in training them.
It may be surprising but it is true that globally there is decline in the success rate of Projects. This suggests that the maturity level of Construction Project management organisations in different areas of projects is low.
Knowledge Management is of crucial importance to efficient construction project management. The growing complexity of project work means that an increasing number of technical and social relationships / interfaces must be taken into account by project managers in adapting knowledge and experiences from earlier projects.
The construction Industry in our country is not only un-organised it is ill-organised too. The Importance of of having trained/skilled construction workers is being realised only now. For a construction project to be successfully delivered, it is vital to have skilled/trained workers. Project Managers alone cannot do it.
The frenetic pace of construction in India is drawing international attention and many international agencies are making India a preferred destination for their investments. The size of the projects now need higher and faster funding, and the foreign investment is in greater demand today.
