Produktbeschreibung
The objective of the book is to make accessible the ways in whichsocial network analysis (SNA) may be used to observe, monitor andanalyse systems and relationships in major construction projectcoalitions. Although this has been an established analyticaltechnique in the US for some time, it is only now being developedin the UK. Having spent nearly two decades investigating major projectrelationships using SNA, the author has brought togethermathematical and sociological methods, and major projectrelationships in a manner that will inspire both academic interestand a desire to apply these concepts and techniques to liveconstruction projects. Case studies include projects from two ofthe UKs largest property developers, the UK Ministry of Defence anda County Council. SNA is innovative - but potentially inaccessible to projectmanagement analysts and practitioners. This book will provide clearand relevant explanation and illustration of the possibilities ofusing SNA in a major project environment. In addition to offering the potential; for sophisticatedretrospective analysis of a wide range of systems associated withconstruction and engineering project coalitions, the author looksat how we might apply the network analysis findings to the designand management of project and supply chain networks.
