Abstract

Probably the single biggest agent of change in business processes over the past fifteen years has been the introduction, use and development of Information Technology (IT). This is also likely to be true for the construction industry, but many observers suggest that our industry has not introduced, used or developed IT to anything like the extent to which it could or should. This article considers how individual Project Managers, and firms that act in a Project Management capacity, can encourage the exploitation of IT on their construction projects. The benefits of doing so may not just accrue to the client (e.g. improved quality/performance, lower total costs, faster completion times) and the general economy; there are also potential benefits (e.g. increased profits, less stress, greater job satisfaction) for all participants in the construction project process, including the Project Manager.
