Considerations in Management of Geotechnical Project

Course Status


Project Management is the practice of leading the work of a team to achieve goals and meet success criteria within specific time and budget (PMI, 2020).

Consequently, geotechnical engineering is a dynamic, exciting and evolving discipline (Barton, 2006). In this lecture, the author examines geotechnical engineering topics related to the management of geotechnical data and processes; training of geotechnical engineers in the private and public sectors; the future of geotechnical engineering education; and the importance of geotechnical engineering (Jaska, Ho & Woodward, 2009).
