Sixth edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management
The updates are important reflections on how the practice and processes in construction have changed, and the increasing pressures on the industry, with the Code of Practice (CoP) having undergone a significant re-structuring since the 5th edition.
In this new edition, CIOB is aiming to equip construction and project managers with insight into a whole life-cycle approach, where assets can be delivered not only to meet the expected quality, cost and time targets, but where other broader, but equally important, notions of value can be incorporated.
The CoP, in what has been described as a “bold revision” of the previous edition, acknowledges the many challenges in our industry today, and sets the scene in the new version with a set of strategic drivers and some guiding principles:
- Strategic drivers: sustainability, quality, competence and skills, the golden thread of information, delivering ‘value’, the voice of the end-user, driving economic recovery
- Guiding principles: health and safety, EDI (equality, diversity and inclusion), ethics, sustainability, whole-life perspective, project management as a strategic enabler, building information, and leadership
Dr Gina Al-Talal FCIOB, CIOB’s Head of Technical and Standards Development, said: “I am pleased to see this publication undergoing a total revamp at a time when it’s needed more than ever, given the extraordinary pressures on the industry around the world. I have no doubt that this edition will prove an invaluable reference to built environment professionals at all levels. It was not an easy task and my gratitude goes to the construction professionals and academics who contributed so much time and effort into helping us deliver this updated resource.”
The eight themes woven into each chapter help to ensure they are embedded throughout all decision-making processes at every stage of the project: quality, sustainability, value, productivity, leadership, collaboration, knowledge and risk.
Written with built environment practitioners, as well researchers and academics, the new CoP has an easy-to-follow chronological structure, with processes described first in the chapters and guidance notes supporting each section.
The new edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for the Built Environment starts at £52.99, with a 20% discount for CIOB members. It is available now as an eBook from Wiley, publishers of the CoP, and hard copies will be available in June 2022.
