Description

This subject covers strategic approaches to construction project delivery and the leadership requirements for not only construction projects but the construction industry generally. The construction industry is increasingly facing social, economic and environmental challenges that require leaders that can inspire and affect real change. The subject explores the difference between management and leadership and examines how the 'softer' leadership skills such as strategic vision, communication skills, charisma, personality and business understanding can be integrated with project and business strategies to improve both project and business performance. This includes strategic approaches to negotiation and dispute resolution. The characteristics of major industry and world leaders are explored and analysed in terms of their applicability to the construction industry. The importance of cross-cultural skills in a global project environment is also covered. Students are introduced to the concept of organisational project management (OPM) which aligns project deliverables with strategy.
