Civil Engineers are trained to develop their technical expertise, but this limited view often prevents practicing professional from understanding the repercussions of their decisions and how certain behaviors can negatively impact projects. Management Essentials for Civil Engineers: A Practical Guide to Business, Communication, Ethics, and Risk fills the knowledge gap that many early- to-mid career engineers face by taking a holistic, context-based skill building approach. Each chapter examines common engineering scenarios and guides the reader to understand the implications of decisions related to non-technical elements of projects. Four repeated themes are addresses in each scenario: project impact (timing/cost), communication, ethics, and liability/risk. Where other texts focus on a single, specific area of engineering professional practice, this exciting new guide investigates a breadth of topics and ties the lessons learned to real world project scenarios. This text is ideal for practicing engineers that are looking to upskill and advance their careers.
