Disaster Recovery Project Management: Bringing Order from Chaos

( Review 03 )

The scope of disasters ranges from man-made emergency to natural calamity, from a kitchen grease fire to a hurricane or volcanic eruption. While each type of event requires a very different scale and type of immediate response, the project management challenges that face restoration and reconstruction professionals after the emergency phase is complete are remarkably similar. Using decades of real-world experience and academic research, the author explains pertinent requirements and methods for the contractors and other professionals who bring order from chaos. This is the first systematic presentation of the tools and skills needed for disaster recovery project management. It is designed primarily for contractors, although it will also be of value for those who might hire them, the communities they serve, and their organizational partners in the disaster recovery effort. The volume is focused on informing the management of projects that recover the built environment after emergency conditions are sufficiently stabilized, and supplements and complements books devoted to conventional construction or emergency relief management.
