It incorporates a whole host of tasks, from the estimation of resources and duration of tasks to the choice of technology and predicted budget of a project. Developing the planning & construction strategy is a vital task in the management of construction. It may also be helpful when making organisational judgments about the relationships between project participants and even which organisations to include in a project.
