The growth of mobile communications in recent years has transformed the way in which people and organisations communicate and interact. It has revolutionised the construction industry in the way in which information is exchanged and viewed. Moreover, the use of various mobile project management tools and enterprise project management systems in construction management has been on the increase. The construction industry has greatly benefited from the advances in mobile communication technologies. However, the existing mobile applications in construction management only support the delivery of static modes of information (such as project data, technical drawings, risk assessment etc), it is pre-programmed and thus not able to take into account the workers’ changing context, the dynamic project conditions and the level of project information. Mobile applications could be made responsive to users’ wishes if they were context-aware. This is done by using technology that is capable of understanding the users’ intentions by taking into account any relevant supporting information supplied for the purpose. This is what the book is all about.

Project management methodology is a set of established guidelines that are used for executing projects in every industry. They are broadly based on initiating, planning, organizing, executing, and monitoring & controlling process group. However, project management is carried out through nine project management knowledge areas i.e. integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk and procurement management. Projects are governed by certain factors that have major influence in directing the success or failures. Broadly cost, time & scope have been identified as key important success factors for projects. This research is carried out to identify the critical success factors in EPC/PC projects in Oil & Gas industry of Kuwait and to compare the results with previous established success factors.
Risk management has become a necessary activity in the administration of a hospital .The present study focused on assessment of some aspects of risk management in Main University Hospital in Alexandria (MUHA), including fire prevention and control measures , performance of hospital staff in providing some patient care activities and procedures which have the potential of risk of infection , knowledge of hospital staff regarding prevention of some occupational illnesses , training programs relevant to employees safety , and the role of relevant committees in implementation of risk management activities . The study was conducted in one general medical ward and one surgical ward in MUHA .Six checklists were designed to collect data about fire prevention and control measures and five patient care practices . Two questionnaires were prepared for interview with nurses , housekeepers and chairmen of safety related hospital committees namely : occupational health and safety committee , infection control committee and environment committee . The study revealed shortcoming of risk management in the MUHA .In spite of the presence of committee .

The study seeks to clarify why donors such as the World Bank still insist on the use of their financial management system rather than the recipient country’s financial management system, despite the intention under the Paris Declaration 2005 to use the respective government’s systems. The study then explores the reasons why the financial management system used by the World Bank is more effective in managing risks related to public financial management and aid as compared to the Government of Malaysia approach. The study compares financial management by the World Bank and Ministry of Education Malaysia, in their parallel implementation of Educational Sector Support Projects (ESSP) under the Eighth Malaysian Plan, 2001-2005. The quality of financial management of projects in two systems is compared using established criteria of good financial management practice. Findings are based on evidence from interviews, documentation and direct observations. The study demonstrates the significant roles in reducing risks played in the World Bank approach by the Project Management Reports (PMR), high quality Project Implementation Unit (PIU) staff and better procurement procedures.
This book describes the application of Risk Management (RM) in offshore and marine industries – principally with regard to its application in marine ports, offshore terminals, petrochemical seaports and facilities. It provides a useful guide on HAZID, Risk Priority Assessment, FTA, ETA, Bow-Tie Method, SVA (Security Vulnerability Assessment) and Risk Mitigation in environments where there is uncertainty of data sources. The methodology and proposed RM framework in this book can be useful for managers and auditors when conducting their RM programmes. It also introduces guidelines for QHSES managers that are involved with Quality, Health, Safety, Environment and Security issues. The primary focus of this book is on offshore terminals and marine ports. However, any continuous operation that could lead to negative consequence (i.e. fatalities, major property damage, environmental impact and business reputation) or a security threat would have applicability. As such, this book would be a valuable asset for loss prevention and safety engineers, regulators, inspectors, insurers and consultants. It is recommended as a helpful guide for reliability and safety engineering students.
Human body has the natural ability to protect and heal itself, like all the systems which existing in the nature. It means that, Immune System which is one of the main systems in humans that protects them from illness. In other words, it is a network of cells, tissues, and organs designed complexly for preventing the body against germs, viruses, and other form of body toxins. As microbial invasions attempt to pass through the body’s natural barriers, immune system alerts body's defenses and calls to action the natural processes that keep the body safe and healthy.On the other hand, Risk Management in the organizations includes the processes concerned with identifying, analyzing and evaluation the factors that might adversely affect project outcomes which is important as one of the main items in security management. Because of these many methodologies are created for risk management, but some failures are specified in these methodologies. In other words, they are not complete. Hence the research wants to find a relationship between Immune System as one of the complete management systems in nature and current methodologies of risk management, by comparison of them with each other.

The Educational Project Management book is a practical guide to plan and create innovative and successful educational projects for Technology Enhanced Learning. It goes beyond the traditional models and is anchored in new approaches to organise and deliver unique and successful educational projects. It is based upon the author's work and PhD thesis on discovering unique processes and theories based on Ethnotechnology and Human-Computer Interaction Education for appropriate solutions. Then, these were translated into tools for Technology Enhanced Learning projects. In the educational project example explored in this book, Educational Project Management aimed at tackling the eLearners’ total absence of active participation and engagement in creative eLearning communities’ discussions for 3 years. The identified solutions provided novel theories, newfound tools and evaluation techniques for engaging, active, effective and efficient creative eLearning communities. Hence, this Educational Project Management book follows the project timeline offering an innovative and practical toolkit to the everyday practitioner in Technology Enhanced Learning.
