Innovative and novel, this book extends its coverage of the topic well beyond the conventional themes of project solicitation and proposal evaluation. Using extensive experience gathered over five years of teaching postgraduate courses, Walker and Rowlinson build on Procurement Systems: A Guide to Best Practice in Construction to present a comprehensive and coherent volume that is invaluable to the wider project management community.

Cross-disciplinary in approach, coverage includes general historical issues and practical discussions of different types of projects and their procurement needs. It provides and discusses cutting-edge research and thought leadership on issues such as:

  • stakeholder management
  • ethics and corporate governance issues
  • business strategy implications on procurement
  • e-business
  • innovation and organizational learning
  • cultural dimensions
  • human resource development.

Helping readers to design project procurement implementation paths that deliver sustainable value, this indispensable volume is key reading for students, lecturers and professionals working in or studying project management.
