Emerging Trends in Construction Organisational Practices and Project Management Knowledge Areas: Proceedings of the 9th cidb conference proceedings

Synopsis

The cidb Act mandates the cidb to support human resource development in the construction industry by establishing best practices and advising organs of the state on human resource development in relation to the construction industry. To achieve this, the cidb has since 2004 been collaborating with universities that offer construction management related qualifications to host a successful postgraduate conference series. The cidb is pleased to welcome you to this 9th edition of the cidb Postgraduate Conference hosted by the Department of Construction Economics and Management of the University of Cape Town, in partnership with the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. It is my belief that you will enjoy the conference that comes at a very critical time in our transformation journey as an industry. The main theme of this conference is: Emerging trends in construction organisational practices and project management knowledge areas. These have a direct bearing on the transformation journey of the country as we grapple with how best to create a just, fair and inclusive society where all are equally valued for their contributions, to the nation building project. I sincerely hope that as you debate the emerging trends in construction organisational practices, you will pay special attention to issues of transformation of the industry as well as your roles as academics. The cidb encourages all participants to work together collectively to transform this industry.
