CHICAGO, Ill., Feb. 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Sales of the textbook “Construction Project Management – a Managerial Approach” (ISBN: 978-0-9799969-1-7) by Pareto Publishing, have increased 400 percent each semester since publication in December 2010. The text is now increasingly used in United States 2-year, 4-year and graduate university construction management, architecture and real estate programs.
Winning the Axion Business Book, Indie Next Generation, and International Best Book Awards, it has also become popular with construction industry practitioners and is now in library collections worldwide.
Demanding building owners have learned that simply soliciting multiple bids is no longer enough to achieve the results they seek-a paradigm shift to integrated project delivery is needed. This text uniquely provides this integration of construction management, project management and business management to enable a quantum leap in construction project quality, productivity and cost control-producing a competitive advantage essential in the now challenging United States construction market.
And it is the first to integrate the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® methodology into construction. The United States manufacturing, power production, and energy distribution owners increasingly value and demand this integration. And all construction sectors in some areas outside the United States, particularly the Middle East, demand this methodology and require the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification credential for new employees. In the United States, the federal government GSA (General Services Administration) agency also makes the PMP credential preferred for new construction related employees – which can make it a de facto requirement in a competitive employment environment.
In this challenging U.S. commercial and residential construction employment market for graduating construction management students, many question the cost-benefit relationship of an increasingly costly university education.
This text, authored by JF McCarthy MBA CFM PMP a 40-year construction veteran, provides real world perspective and skills to make the graduating students work ready – to win their first job and excel throughout their career. And it provides exactly the skills that the power generation and energy constructions sectors, which have already rebounded and are now aggressively hiring, increasingly demand.
University adoptions and presales sales for the summer and fall of 2012 will continue the present text sales increase. With these continued increases “Construction Project Management – A Managerial Approach” will achieve a dominant share of the construction management academic market within 2-3 years.
