This unit addresses the planning, management and evaluation of projects and contracts in the environmental industry. The unit places an emphasis on working within the current public sector planning and budgetary contexts. It also addresses management processes generally and processes, procedures and perspectives operating in private enterprises within the environmental management sector. There are two major themes in the subject matter: professional practice in environmental management, and project and contract management in the environmental industry. These themes are addressed in tandem and weave together throughout the unit. Projects and contracts are the subject matter. Professional practice is the way the material is acted upon. Relationships between the client, customers, stakeholders, the project manager and the project team are discussed. The importance of organisational style and human resources management to those relationships is also identified.
