Effective construction briefing is vital for a successful project, whether this be in terms of client satisfaction or an effective commercial outcome for the professionals involved.

Despite that, however, poor briefing continues to result in late buildings which do not adequately meet a client′s requirements, achieved through a process they do not enjoy.
This book, based on detailed research with industrial partners, identifies five key areas where briefing can be improved:

empowering the client

managing the project dynamics

appropriate user involvement

team building, and

the use of appropriate visualisation techniques.

The areas for improvement are described in detail and are backed up with comments from clients and practitioners. A series of case studies adds further practical detail. It is shown that good briefing is good business.
This easy–to–read guide provides an effective improvement process which firms can adapt to their specific circumstances. It will appeal both to clients and their professional advisers.
