There is a growing understanding that to be competitive at an international level, Civil Engineers must build on their traditional strengths in technology and science with greater mastery of the business of Civil Engineering, the "softer" skills of management, teamwork, ethics, leadership, communication. These skills have been defined as essential to the successful practice of Civil Engineering by the ASCE Body of Knowledge Task Force and can be gained through formal education or experience. This book will be the first to take the practical skills defined by the ASCE BOK and provide illuminating techniques, quotes, case examples, problems and information to assist the reader in addressing the many challenges facing Civil Engineers in the real world. From the challenge of sustainability to the rigors of problem recognition and solving, the book provides an essential tool for working as a practicing Civil Engineer.
