Topics in Strategic Program Management By Robert Prieto
Paperback: $49.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Topics in Strategic Program Management builds upon the thinking in my earlier book, Strategic Program Management (published by CMAA; ISBN 978-0-9815612-1-9) while looking at some special applications... More > of Strategic Program Management’s basic principles and concepts. It starts by looking at a growing set of the largest engineering and construction programs worldwide and tries to gleam some lessons from these new “giga” projects. The term “giga” itself is new and was selected to convey the ever increasing scale and complexity of challenges the largest of these programs faces rather than to convey any strict mathematical relationships.< Less

The GIGA Factor Program Management in the Engineering & Construction Industry By Robert Prieto
Hardcover: $180.00
Ships in 6-8 business days.
The largest, most complex engineering and construction programs have a lot to teach smaller programs about effective Program Management. Robert Prieto’s new book, The Giga Factor: Program... More > Management in the Engineering & Construction Industry collects and analyzes these lessons for their broadest possible application. “By looking at the largest of the engineering and construction programs in the industry, so called “Giga Programs” , we are able to see details that are masked or lost in the noise of mega-programs and smaller projects,” Prieto says. “While these lessons are focused on these Giga Programs, having discovered them, many will be applicable on smaller-scale mega programs.” The book’s exploration of Program Management includes chapters devoted to: • Program Initiation • Program Governance • Program Execution • Program Management Oversight • Risks and Opportunities • Sustainability and Innovation • Special Applications • Case History and Lessons Learned< Less
Application of Life Cycle Analysis in the Capital Assets Industry By Robert Prieto
Paperback: $100.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
In the book Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)is defined as the assessment of the total cost or benefit of an asset over its lifetime. Also referred to as Whole Life Costing (WLC) or Life Cycle Value... More > Analysis (LCVA). LCA systematically considers all relevant costs and revenues associated with the acquisition, ownership and disposal of an asset. It considers associated risks and uncertainties. Importantly, LCA supports a comprehensive assessment of sustainability by considering all benefits and impacts within a Triple Bottom Line (TBL) Framework< Less
Resilience: Managing the Risk of Natural Disasters By Robert Prieto
Paperback: List Price: $35.00 $28.00 | You Save: 20%
Ships in 3-5 business days
Resilience: Managing the Risk of Natural Disaster considers risk management strategies, risk identification methods, and pre- and post- event activities to minimize risk. Post-event recovery is a... More > more widely understood field, as practitioners have a plethora of lessons learned from completed projects. Pre-event planning as a means of minimizing damage and downtime is a lesser developed field, and this book organizes both literature supported data and the authors’ anecdotal experiences into a framework for disaster management, spanning pre- and post- event. The book serves as a companion to Resilience: An Engineering & Construction Perspective, in which co-author Bob Prieto describes his perspectives on the challenges of resilience in large scale engineering and construction programs. Together, these books offer the reader fresh perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that exist before and after disaster strikes and how to act to improve outcomes.< Less
