Abstract

The problem is how to define the life cycle of an efficient construction manager when a lot of various stakeholders are involved in his activities, when alternative versions of construction management come to hundreds of thousands and when the efficiency changes with the alterations in the personality traits, the micro, meso and macro conditions and the constituent parts of the process in question. Formalized presentation of the research shows how changes in the personality traits, micro, meso and macro environment and the extent to which the goals pursued by various stakeholders are satisfied cause corresponding changes in the value and utility degree of a construction manager life cycle. For that purpose, we need to analyse versions of a construction manager life cycle, because such analysis helps to find an optimal combination of factors related to the personality and micro, meso and macro environment. The more alternative versions are investigated before making a final decision, the greater is the possibility of a more rational end result. Using the available information it is possible to perform the multiple criteria analysis of the components of a construction manager life cycle and to select the most efficient versions. Afterwards, the resulting compatible and rational components are combined into the alternatives of a construction manager life cycle. Following the multiple criteria analysis of the alternatives obtained in this way, the most efficient alternatives can be selected. Strengths and weaknesses of investigated alternatives are also analysed. The facts determining why and to what extent one version is better than the other are also established. All analyses are based on conceptual and quantitative information.
